Spanning from 1880 to 2008 and assembled by the acclaimed Dominique Sirop (he worked hand-in-hand with YSL, Givenchy, and Hanae Mori), the pieces will now bulk up the museum's Costume and Textiles Department, which is already at 25,000-item hoarder status — not to mention strengthen L.A.'s growing rep as a true fashion hub. Trust us, this extravagance will be enough reason to cancel any brunch, shopping expedition, or even hot date when it hits those Wilshire walls. Peruse through our mini-gallery now to get your fix until you can ogle it all in person (stay tuned on the exhibition info!).
