As MoMA's first fashion exhibition in 70+ years, Items: Is Fashion Modern? brilliantly examined fashion in the context of society, culture, and technology. Curators Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher chose 111 items of clothing and accessories including the manicure, and I was honored to support Michelle's research on nails through my book, conversations, and advisement on object and image selection. Congrats to the whole stellar Items team!
