Sonia Delaunay (Russia 1885, France 1979) at the Cooper Hewitt

One more good reason to visit NYC this spring; the Cooper Hewitt is opening "Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Saunia Delaunay". According to their website, "this exhibition will focus on fashion designs from her own Atelier Simultané in Paris during the 1920s, as well as textiles designed for the Metz & Co. department store in Amsterdam in the 1930s. On view will be examples of designs, textiles, garments and photographs from the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, the Musée de l'Impression sur Etoffes in Mulhouse, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France and private collections around Europe and the United States." 

There's no other image on their website yet but here's a few I could find online that are fashion or textile related:

I like her bold style and the way she uses gouache.

And I think I'd be dazzling in one of those...

At the Cooper Hewitt from March 18 through June 5, 2011.
