Phoenix art museum exhibition features ’60s paper fashion

The 1960s paper manner motion lasted for only two quick many years but it was two many years of paper, paper and additional paper.

Paper saris, knit paper dresses, paper purses and paper jewelry.

Now, you can see more than 80 preserved items at Phoenix Artwork Museum. 

“Generation Paper: Fast Fashion in the 1960s” opens on Dec. 18  and runs via July 17, 2022. The exhibition was mostly donated by museum supporter Kelley Ellman, whose like for paper dolls motivated a lifetime of collecting the paper trend of the 60s, she stated. 

Paper vogue was “all the rage,” mentioned Helen Jean, the Museum’s Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Style Design. 

“Since it was a bizarre, novel, enjoyable gag thing, it took off like mad,” Jean mentioned.
