Showcases outfits worn by some of the world’s best-dressed women and explores the influence of Middle Eastern and North African textiles and culture on 20th century fashion. The retrospective covers Porter’s life and career from Jerusalem to Damascus, Beirut in the 1950s, Soho in the 1960s, and New York, Los Angeles and Paris in the 1970s.
