Opened on March 19, 2022, the exhibition Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear is on show at the V&A Museum in London. The exhibit is celebrating the diversity within masculine attire and appearance. As it unfolds, the presentation will trace the story of men’s fashion throughout history. Approximately 100 looks and 100 artworks will be displayed.
Claire Wilcox and Rosalind McKever, co-curators of Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear, state, “Masculine fashion is enjoying a period of unprecedented creativity. It has long been a powerful mechanism for encouraging conformity or expressing individuality. Rather than a linear or definitive history, this is a journey across time and gender. The exhibition will bring together historical and contemporary looks with art that reveal how masculinity has been performed. This will be a celebration of the masculine wardrobe, and everyone is invited to join in.”
