What's New In New York State!

Counter-Couture Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture

Manhattan , New York City | Arts & Culture

Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture exhibition presents the fashion and style of the 1960s and 1970s. These hippie, boho garments represented not only an aesthetic of the time, but a countercultural lifestyle that was outspoken and unconventional. The clothing, usually handmade with patchwork, quilting, sewing or tie-dye, embodied the spirit of anti-Vietnam War and pro-civil rights movements. Embroidered boots, leather capes and clothing with feathers and beads are among the statement pieces.
