400 Years of Fashion: Anatomy of a Collection

Take a behind-the-seams look at "the world's greatest museum of art and design" with this documentary screening at the Bowers Museum. Focusing in on the Victoria and Albert Museum's monumental dress collection, the largest and most extensive on the planet, viewers are treated to a detailed look at the museum's process of acquisition as well as its part in providing references and resources to clothing designers both in high fashion and the film industry—and with nearly-pristine articles dating back to the early 1700s, they're the authority. After the film, stroll through Bowers' current exhibit, "Cut! Costume and the Cinema," featuring a lush collection of award-winning film costumes and cinematic couture.
