It will tell the connection between history and high fashion, exploring how the high fashion of today relates to the high fashion of decades past. Styles are not arranged chronologically, but presented thematically, joining together through influence and style rather than era. The five thematic sections are Revolution/Evolution, East/West, Uniformity Body Consciousness, and The Splendid Man.
