Featuring examples from Vera Neumann’s prolific 40-year career, this exhibition will draw from GMD’s collection of approximately 550 Vera scarves. From humble beginnings designing in her New York City kitchen, Neumann’s designs captured the zeitgeist of the tumultuous postwar years and propelled the designer to international fame. Her decision to sign her colorful scarves transformed them from simple accessories to “Veras,” coveted by women the world over.
Exhibition Curator: Natasha Thoreson, Apparel Studies PhD candidate
