Exhibition: Redesigning Fashion

May 15, 2021 - November 13, 2021

Redesigning Fashion

Advance tickets not needed. Simply purchase at the front desk when you arrive.

A partnership between SCHS and the Fashion & Textiles program at SUNY Oneonta in which students have been given the opportunity to research a historic garment from SCHS’ collection, and based on that research, design its modern counterpart. The collaboration has resulted in an exhibition that explores the historical importance of women’s clothing and fashion in the expression of cultural values and the creation of identity, and examines how those ideals change over time.

Made possible by a grant from Humanities New York
