Goethe Pop Up Houston: Fashioning a Nation
An exploration of the powerful history of German fashion from its international impact to its destruction by the Nazi regime, FASHIONING A NATION pays tribute to the Jewish Germans who contributed to its rise and commemorates the great cultural and economic loss resulting from its demise.
