"Illuminating Fashion: Dress in the Art of Medieval France and the Netherlands"

Well before France's Coco Chanel or Holland's Dries Van Noten designed duds, Northern Europe was the toast of medieval fashion on the continent. The Morgan Library looks at 200 years of rapidly changing styles from the 14th century through the early Renaissance. More than 50 illustrated manuscripts and printed books are on display, along with four outfits Corinne Roes of Atelier Mette Maelwael in the Netherlands made using materials and techniques from the period.
