Counter-Couture at Bellevue Arts Museum

Whether you’re a man, woman or child, there’s usually something interesting to discover when it comes to fashion. I mean really, what kid doesn’t find a “princess” outfit or knight’s attire fascinating? And no matter how un-stylish the man is, he knows what he likes to see on his loved one. So, with so much agreement within the ranks, why not take a trip out to Bellevue and visit the Bellevue Arts Museum for its Counter-Couture show!

The exhibit is showing now and runs through January 2016, and is full of remarkable items highlighting the handmade clothing that pervaded the 1960s and ’70s. It truly captures the liberal vibe and general upheaval that was going on in the United States at the time, specifically through four unique perspectives: Funk & Flash, Couture, Performance and Transcendence.

You will most certainly see how these clothes reflect the change their creators were trying to achieve.
