Textile Conservation

Balenciaga installation 2011: Mellon Conservation Fellow Nicole Bloomfield from LACMA lent her costume and conservation skills to the exhibition. Her graduate school training at Fashion Institute of Technology-NY helped tremendously with the success of the install. Here she is with the costume borrowed from the Galliera, Musee de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, that was nicknamed "the caterpillar dress".
