Lasell Professor Curates Fashion Exhibit at Larz Anderson Auto Museum

May 15, 2013

The connection between fashion and fast cars is palpable in a new exhibit at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline called  "Patina, Provenance, Originality." The exhibit, which features cars from the collection of Joseph S. Freeman, also includes a fashion component focusing on "Fast Ladies" - illustrating the link between fashion and female race car drivers between the 1920's and 1980's. This portion of the exhibit was curated by Lasell Fashion Professor Anne Vallely.

At the exhibit opening  on May 9, David Northey,  grandson of iconic car maker W.O. Bentley, spoke to over 200 guests about thoughtful preservation of collectible automobiles, focusing on preservation versus restoration of collectible cars.

The exhibit will be on display until April 2014.
