Mina sent me a list of fashion museums around the world from — I've repurposed it into a wiki page over at the . Know of others? Please add them!

Which reminds me, do you all know about ? It's April 16 this year.

Slow Art Day was started to invite novices – and experts – to experience the art of looking at art slowly.

It's a very simple process. Volunteer hosts (not necessarily experts) invite people to come to a local museum and view a small number of works of art for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then everyone meets for lunch at a nearby cafe to talk about their experience. And all this happens the same day around the world.

In San Francisco, my son and I will be doing Slow Art Day at the Cartoon Art Museum — come !

If there's a fashion museum by you, why not  in your city?
