This magnet and magnetic bookmark set features a dress and closeup pattern featured in the exhibition Generation Paper: Fast Fashion of the 1960s.
Generation Paper: Fast Fashion of the 1960s explores the phenomenon of the disposable fashion era through more than 80 rare garments and accessories selected entirely from the Museum’s comprehensive fashion-design collection, which is home to one of the leading collections of paper fashion in the United States. The exhibition showcases dresses, bikinis, skirts, hats, jumpsuits, rompers, beach cover-ups, and more made from paper, plastic, laminate, and other disposable materials, many of which were highly flammable although coated in flame-retardant chemicals.
