A new art exhibition that displays the fashion of style icon Ann Bonfoey Taylor opened recently. The exhibit, which is showing at the Phoenix Art Museum, contains Taylor's collection along with pictures and personal letters spanning throughout her life, according to the Downtown Devil.
Taylor's achievements lie both within and outside the fashion design field, and all of them are showcased in the exhibit. She was a World War II flight instructor, an Olympic skier and a champion tennis player. She was one of the first to design ski wear. Her widespread talent offered more than fashion at the exhibit, the news source reported.
"Just because it’s a fashion exhibition, people shouldn’t be limited if they don’t think they have a specific fashion interest," Dennita Sewell, the curator of fashion design at the Phoenix Art Museum, said to the news source.
This showing will run through May 29 of this year.
The job market for fashion design students who wish to enter this profession is expected to increase by 1 percent between the years 2008 and 2018, resulting in keen competition for positions in this field, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
