Virtual Viewing 

With most museums around the world still closed, many are opening their archives so works of art may be viewed digitally  and that extends to film costumes as well.

 

The Costume Institute at New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art is home to more than 33,000 pieces of fashion through the centuries, and among them is this gown designed by Travis Banton, which features a dragon motif crafted of gold and silver sequins. The dress was worn by Anna May Wong in 1934s Limehouse Blues, and was gifted by Ms. Wong in 1956 to the Brooklyn Museum, which in turn gifted it to the Costume Institute in 2009.

Other costumes, private-label looks and accessories by designers that include Adrian, Helen Rose, Lily Daché and John P. John  whose John Frederics millinery designs included work for films and actresses  also can be viewed in the Mets digital archive.
