As one of the major ‘frames’ for understanding both historical and contemporary fashion, this paper will focus upon some of the debate surrounding the fashion exhibit conducted in the museum. It will take as a case-study 'AngloMania. Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion', held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 3 May- 4 September 2006, as an example of a possible new type of exhibition merging art historical research with contemporary styling and viewing practices including net-based and pod-cast activity.
