Dear Shaded Viewers,

“The Total Look: the Creative Collaboration Between Rudi Gernreich, Peggy Moffitt and William Claxton,” a new exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Pacific Design Center satellite in West Hollywood 

Cameron Silver, a fashion historian and the founder of the vintage haute couture boutique Decades in Los Angeles first met Moffitt and CLaxton when he first opened Decades more than 15 years ago. Silver worked closely with Pegg Moffitt on the exhibition. For the exhibition the architectural firm Marmol Radziner dressed MOCA PDC in the same tones, hues and shapes as Gernreich used in his fashion  designs.
