The exhibition consists of a capsule collection of fashion items from different ages and cultures that caused suffering either in their manufacture or when they were worn.

The show opens on Friday, February 9, with a screening at 6 p.m. of “Chasing Coral,” a documentary on the world’s disappearing coral reefs, followed at 8 p.m. by a panel discussion with experts on the subject “Fashion Victim vs Victim of Fashion.”

The show can be viewed daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Admission to the exhibition and the opening night events are free of charge.
