"On Stage in Fashion" Exhibit at NYPL Ends Tomorrow!

Who knew a library could be more than just books. "On Stage in Fashion" is an exhibit at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery.

The exhibit showcases the ever-graying lines between fashion and art. Featuring the dirndl worn by Mary Martin in the "Sound of Music" to Renee Fleming's costume from "Thaïs." See designs by Christian LaCroix, Chanel, Lanvin, Bill Blass, and more.

Be inspired by your favorite designers and go to the library! Not convinced? Check out what the NYTimes has to say about the exhibit. Your last chance to see "On Stage" is Saturday at 6PM before these exquisite pieces of fashion history are back in the vault.

While you're uptown, I recommend taking a trip to the opera or just bask in the scenery of Lincoln Center. Or head to Time Warner Center for some macarons at Bouchon Bakery.
