Shop Like an Heiress: Buying Fashion in the 20th Century is a celebration of fashion and shopping through the experience of Doris Duke. Miss Duke’s closet included everything from custom made couture gowns to ready-to-wear suits, all purchased from a wide variety of sources. This exhibit explored how Doris Duke assembled her wardrobe in a diverse system that took her from French Couture houses to American department stores in search of stylish, chic clothes that established her as one of the best dressed in society.
