Uncovering Dress: An Exploration of Fashion as a Cultural History

2 hours 41 min ago
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM - College Center Palmer Gallery Uncovering Dress: An Exploration of Fashion as a Cultural HistoryThe Vassar College Costume Collection (VCCC) is a collection of original historic clothing, dating from the 1830s to the present. The collection is primarily womenswear, representing the relationship of the collection to Vassar's history as the first of the Seven Sisters to be chartered as a women's college, founded in 1861. The collection also includes examples from a variety of design houses such as Jeanne Lanvin, Maison Levilion, Callot Soeurs, Liberty, Pucci, Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, Pauline Trigere, and Lilly Pulitzer. Each garment comes to us from Vassar's community and represents Vassar's own past, telling us in turn about the history of women's education and the history of the Hudson Valley.
