Fashion Friday: Kitchen Wear
Our exhibition “The Main Dish" has got kitchenware (or kitchenWEAR) on our minds, like this condiment-covered dress by Philadelphia-born designer Tina Leser. Her mix-and-match separates were inspired by such wide-ranging sources as English game tables, chenille bedspreads, and Italian folk costumes. Sketches for this design reveal that it was intended for casual wear, as Leser paired it with a matching oven mitt. Explore more of Leser’s whimsical styles here.
