Paper Mag: Scenes from the Opening for Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch at the Museum at FIT

Last night was the opening of Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch at the Museum of FIT, an exhibit dedicated to the fabulous, glitter-flecked fashion worn by legendary nightlife doyenne, Susanne Bartsch, and her friends. Designs in the show come from Leigh Bowery, John Galliano,The Blonds, Stephen Jones, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pam Hogg, Alexander McQueen, Thierry Mugler (who can forget the egg-shaped wedding dress he designer for her 1995 nuptials to David Barton?!), Rick Owens, Vivienne Westwood, Zaldy and Rachel Auburn.
