By Andrew Bolton

Preface and interview: Jessica Regan and Mellissa Huber

Photographs by Nicolas Alan Cope

In Pursuit of Fashion presents more than 80 outstanding works from one of the greatest private collections of 20th-century fashion. Featuring not only iconic works by established designers but also pioneering works by lesser-known couturiers, the ensembles, accessories, and works on paper—collected over seven decades by Sandy Schreier—include many rare pieces that define key moments in fashion history. Fashions by Gilbert Adrian, Cristobal Balenciaga, Boué Soeurs, Gabrielle Chanel, Christian Dior, Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo, Maria Gallenga, Karl Lagerfeld, Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet, and others are illustrated with new photography by Nicolas Alan Cope. A fascinating introduction, six informative chapters, and a lively interview with Schreier trace the progress of her collecting from its roots in Detroit to the present.

Andrew Bolton is the Wendy Yu Curator in Charge, Jessica Regan is Associate Curator, and Mellissa Huber is Assistant Curator, all at The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Accompanying the exhibition at The Met Fifth Avenue, on view November 27, 2019–May 17, 2020.
