Museum Crawl: Must See Fashion Exhibits

When we start to see how fashion serves a purpose in our culture and history, we begin to dismiss the frivolous segment of it and assimilate a more responsible and protective conduct.

Fashion needs to be seen and not just a 20-minute catwalk or shopping spree.  Museums are a cure for cultural curiosity.
