NYC – Madison Avenue – South? Native Fashion Now comes to Lower Manhattan

Part One

Lower Manhattan on a bright sunny day… hot, humid and in need of “coolness”. What better way to escape but to visit the  NYC Museum of the American Indian.

The museum  is located in the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House at One Bowling Green in New York City. ( more on this on next blog.) Free admission too!

During this visit they had on display an exhibition “Native Fashion Now” Nearly 70 works spanning the last 50 years Native fashion designers and artists from style-makers to maverick designers. The show emphasizes fashion and creativity in Native culture. I share a few photos from this exhibit. I will share in the next blog some of the interesting exhibits in  other parts of the building..

Part two will cover the building history as well as the other exhibits.

 

 

 

 

“Native Fashion Now” is on view through September 4, 2017.
