London’s Design Museum is celebrating how influential women have marked their place in society with the use of dress. The exhibit “Women Fashion Power” looks at how designers, CEOs, models, and princesses from all over the world show their authority and self-expression through signature looks and fashion designs. With a multimedia experience, exclusive interviews, and historic clothing, this exhibit provides viewers with a unique experience and story. The museum features women such as Vivienne Westwood, Princess Diana, Diane von Furstenberg, and Anne Hidalgo, showing how they have played an instrumental role in linking clothing to defining social movements and periods in history. In honor of this exhibit and these powerful women, here are some books to check out at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library:
