AMERICAN BEAUTY

We're planning a hop skip and jump across the pond to take a peek at FIT's current exhibition. American Beauty: Aesthetics and Innovation in Fashion looks at the concept of beauty and dress making and how the two are best brought together by a selection of 25 of America's über designers.  Forget notions of sartorial safety or fashion blandness – the 75 looks on show display the sort of wild creativity and technical wizardry that comes out of the very best fashion houses. Check out the darling Pauline Trigère dress and coat, or the stunning John Galanos black structured number. We're already drooling and we haven't even booked our flights yet!  It's on until April 10 2010, so if you find yourself in New York get down there.
