The Tuxedo Redefined Exhibit Opening

Opening Reception for The Tuxedo Redefined: Formality, Fluidity, and Femininity
80 Washington Square East
Saturday, January 11th, 2020
5:00PM - 7:00PM

Curated by NYU Steinhardt Costume Studies M.A. program students under the guidance of The Met Costume Institute’s Mellissa Huber, The Tuxedo Redefined delves into the evolution of the standard for men’s formalwear - the tuxedo. Depictions of the tuxedo in film and stage costumes have inspired many women to adopt this style for themselves, challenging conventional notions of gender and sexual identity in the process. Join Mellissa and the students for the opening reception of this much anticipated exhibit.
