Stories in Fashion, a Nebraska Perspective
Monday, February 15, 2016 to Friday, April 1, 2016
Seventy years of fashion are represented in the upcoming exhibition, “Nebraska: State of Fashion I” at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery on UNL's east campus. From the closets of former Nebraska governor Kay Orr, from Avery Woods, and from the late Lincoln dressmaker Ilona Berk come vibrant examples of fashion worn in the state of Nebraska between 1920 and 1990. The exhibition opens February 15, 2016 and tells the story of the connoisseurship and skill that went into the creation of women’s dress in the mid- to late-20th century.
