“Different and Daring and Colorful and Californian” with Kevin Jones, Curator, FIDM Museum/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Los Angeles

April 26, 2015 - 02:00 pm

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.
