Mad About Mannequins and Fashion

You’re not wrong if you’re noticing men and women sporting clothing influenced by 1950s styles.  Yes, the popularity of the TV program “Mad Men” has a lot to do with it, but Karen Videtic (Virginia Commonwealth University) an expert on fashion forecasting, says it also reflects changing roles of men and women in the workplace.  Also Featured: “Mannequins in Motion.”  Elizabeth King, (Virginia Commonwealth University) makes mannequins and then sets them in motion with stop-frame film animation.  Her work is in the Hirshhorn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

    Mad about Mannequins doesn’t play or download properly. The show is truncated before the fashion section is even finished. Mannequins in Motion doesn’t play at all.
    Thanks,
