How We Dressed in the Beautiful Country: Selections from the Museum of Chinese in America’s Fashion and Costume Collections

January 20-29

Museum of Chinese in America Partners with East Side House, fellow recipients of Bank of America's Neighborhood Builders Award, to Debut Pop-Up Fashion Exhibition at the Winter Show.

For this year’s Winter Show 2023 at the Park Avenue Armory, MOCA has curated a capsule exhibition highlighting two of its key collections of fashion and costumes: the remarkable hand-tailored qipaos of Aileen Pei, step-mother of I.M. Pei, who lived through historical epochs in early 20th century China before settling with her family in New York in the 1940s, and the dramatically ornate opera gowns from the Chinese Musical and Theatrical Association, an organization that preserved Cantonese opera in New York’s Chinatown beginning in the 1930s.
