Poiret exhibition

I'd give a body part ( perhaps not a truly essential one, like maybe a wisdom tooth) to see this Poiret exhibition at The Metroplitan Museum of Art in New York. I've always loved these Georges Barbier illustrations and would love to see some of these outrageously sumptuous garments in the flesh- not to mention some Barbier illustrations!
I've just finished re-reading The House of Eliot by Jean Marsh too, so I'm dreaming of beautiful clothes made with silks and velvets and glass beads and hats and gloves and proper sewing that won't fall apart after one wear. Sigh.
