Recap of The RISD Cocktail Culture Opening Event!

Posted on: April 15, 2011

Merchants Overseas was pleased to invite our VIP customers to attend the opening of the RISD Museum’s Cocktail Culture event last night!

Sponsors
Cocktail Culture is sponsored by Swarovski with additional support from The Coby Foundation and the Museum Associates. The event last night was a huge success and the dresses were amazing!

Organized by the Rhode Island School of Design Museum’s Department of Costume and Textiles and curated by Joanne Dolan Ingersoll, Cocktail Culture is the first multi-disciplinary exhibition to explore the social ritual of drinking and entertainment through the lens of fashion and design.

The Exhibition Runs Friday, April 15 – Sunday, July 31, 2011

“Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion 1920-1980” is one of the largest exhibitions of costume and textiles in the RISD Museum’s history. From Prohibition to disco, cocktails and fashion ritualized the passage of time, and helped men and women navigate the sweeping social changes that defined 20th-century American life. Cocktail culture—and the fashion that defined it—succeeded in unifying diverse groups of people while providing a means of vibrant personal expression.

Cocktail Culture is accompanied by a robust schedule of related events, including gallery talks, lectures, public events, and educational programming to enhance the exhibition experience.
