Georgia O'Keeffe Personal Style
Haley Mlotek writes in The New Yorker:
The Brooklyn Museum’s fascinating exhibit “Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern,” highlights the understated, androgynous style that helped shape the artist’s “self-crafted persona.” O’Keeffe was an expert seamstress who made her own clothes and altered or otherwise preserved them herself; she kept some of her dresses for as long as sixty years.
The show, which runs through July 23rd as part of a series called “A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism,” seeks out synergies between O’Keeffe’s personal style and her art.
Georgia O'Keeffe's wardrobe included blue jeans to Balenciaga.

Also an excellent video on The Brooklyn Museum website about their exhibit. Georgia O’Keeffe's clothing and how her personal style related to her art. If you cannot personally attend the exhibit, this video will give you a look at her art and apparel and comments from the curators.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern takes a new look at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona—including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera. The exhibition expands our understanding of O'Keeffe by focusing on her wardrobe, shown for the first time alongside key paintings and photographs. It confirms and explores her determination to be in charge of how the world understood her identity and artistic values.
