It looks like the Costume Institute is getting its 2015 schedule under its belt before putting 2014 to bed. According to WWD, curator Harold Koda has been working with Countess Jacqueline de Ribes—a socialite and former muse of Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent who also designed her own clothing—to display designer pieces from her vast collection beginning November 3rd.

It'll be the second consecutive fall show for the institute, following the history of mourning attire that's on display through February 1st. Before this will come the spring exhibit on Chinese fashion and culture, which will also be the theme of the Met Ball.
