Expert talk.

Join Madelyn Shaw, Curator of Textiles at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, as she explores the intrigue of exoticism and how it continues to influence fashion today.

This illustrated talk examines how the quest for novelty and the lure of the exotic can create a cultural connection that transcends romance.

'Exoticism' as it applies to fashion might be defined as viewing 'the other' in a romantic light, resulting in mining other cultures for styles, motifs, techniques, silhouettes, colours, patterns - all the elements of design - in order to create a marketable novelty.
