Rudi Gernreich's daring fashion statements included: the “topless” bathing suit (1964); the “No-Bra” bra (1965); ensembles with clear vinyl inserts (1967); a unisex line (1970); and the thong (1974). These astounding designs appealed to women who were as fashionable as they were bold, youthful, and strong. Join curator Kevin Jones, who oversees the Rudi Gernreich Archive at the FIDM Museum, as he discusses the trajectory of Gernreich’s career and his continuing impact on fashion today.
