One for All, and All for One: The Jumpsuit

The Phoenix Art Museum currently has an exhibit that spotlights the jumpsuit. I know, I know it sounds strange, but if you think about it the jumpsuit has a definite place in history, as well as fashion.

From Elvis to Michael Phelps the jumpsuit has many forms and this exhibit highlights them all. If you are like me and love the history of fashion, then you can’t miss this exhibit. It will take you on a wonderful exploration of the jumpsuit from the early 20th century to today. Some of the amazing pieces you will see are Levis mechanics coveralls from the 1920’s, a WWII “Rosie the Riveter” uniform, and designs from Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney.

Time is running out to catch this fabulous exhibit; it runs through February 1, 2009. So all you history loving fashionistas ditch the mall one afternoon and delight in a bit of culture at the Phoenix Art Museum.

We have included a link for all the information you need about seeing this exhibit. Have fun!
