If you happen to live in LA, there is a totally mod fashion exhibition happening right now at the Pacific Design Center. “The Total Look” focuses on edgy clothing and images that seem as relevant today as they did in the ’60s.
Running now through May 27, the show depicts the creative collaboration between designer Rudi Gernreich, his model and muse Peggy Moffitt and Moffitt’s late husband, the photographer William Claxton, who created the distinctive images of Moffitt activating Gernreich’s designs. The exhibition will feature selected looks from Moffitt’s definitive collection, with films and photographs by Claxton of Moffitt modeling the clothes. “Fashion will go out of fashion” is one of Gernreich’s many memorable declarations, but his designs continue to resonate, looking contemporary 50 years after they were made.
