and as the flourishing garment of fairy tales and high fashion, the
simple shape of the cape takes a surprising transformation based on the
selection of fabric and decoration. From ornate Victorian capes to the
dramatic geometric shapes recently shown on the runway, this exhibition
explores the wide range of styles of this dashing and practical garment.
