Extraordinary Embroidery and Fashion

So I learn about this when its in Berlin?  Taken from a collection belonging to the Los Angeles County Museum.  Lucky to all those on the west coast who have had a chance to see these in person.  Many of the gowns are gorgeous and to think the designers didn't have to go to college for fashion to create these works of art.
Wool plain weave and silk velvet with silk and metallic-thread embroidery, glass beads, and ostrich-feather trim.

Vest 1789-94 Linen canvas with silk needlepoint, linen plain weave with silk supplementary warp cut-pile trim and silk embroidery.
