Bling’s the Thing
For eons humankind has found a way to express individuality, creativity, status and community through personal adornment. For modern women it often takes the form of jewelry and in the 20th century to the present time, costume or fashion jewelry has allowed both designers and wearers to express themselves with the unfettered usage of materials and imagination.
Harrice Miller will illustrate colorful examples of breathtaking costume jewelry from the 1930s up to the present time including designers Chanel, Haskell, Kenneth Jay Lane, Mazer, Marcel Boucher, Eisenberg, Trifari, Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Prada, Vera Wang, Lanvin, Marni and others. Modern day couture designers have entered an age of celebrating the sparkle and glamour costume jewelry lends to their creations, as seen in the pages of the leading fashion magazines and on the runways of New York, Paris, London and Milan.
