Treasures from the Wardrobe
February 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 2, 2022
Experience the unique apparel and textile treasures of the Fashion Studies Historic Costume Collection in Treasures from the Wardrobe opening Saturday, February 5, 2022 at noon. Professor Janet A. Blood, collection and exhibit curator, assisted by Julie Gomboc-Hellam, share their favorite pieces in celebration of the importance and impact dress and appearance has had on us throughout time, place, and culture. Holdings of this teaching collection date as far back as the mid-nineteenth century through the 1980s and feature unique pieces rarely seen by the public. The collection has been built over several decades through the generosity of community donors who wish for their family heirlooms to be used in the education of IUP Fashion Studies students.
