Faking It: Originals, Copies, and Counterfeits

Fashion & Textile History Gallery

December 2, 2014 - April 25, 2015





Faking It: Originals, Copies, and Counterfeits explores various levels of authenticity in fashion using approximately 100 objects from the museumís permanent collection. Throughout the past 150 years of fashion history, couture copies, diffusion lines, and licensing agreements have blurred the line between what is genuine and imitation. Meanwhile, the exponential growth and sophistication of the counterfeit industry has made it increasingly difficult to identify an inauthentic item. Faking It sheds light on the complexities surrounding these topics.
