Modernism and Romanticism: an American Design Approach
Monday, April 20, 2015 to Friday, May 22, 2015
The work of three American designers, Bill Blass, Geoffrey Beene and Oscar de la Renta will be the substance of this costume exhibition that will establish the mood of American fashion in the latter half of the 20th century. Beginning in the late 1960s, these designers emerged on the global fashion scene with fresh talent, energy and sophistication that marked women's changing position in society. Extant costumes from the UNL collection along with pieces from Indiana University and Ohio State University will adorn the gallery and deliver a message about American ingenuity.
Twenty-four pieces of some of the finest work produced by UNL’s fashion and textile design students will be on display at the Biennial Student Juried Exhibition at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery in the Department of Textiles Merchandising and Fashion Design in the College of Education and Human Sciences. The work will be on display in the gallery on the second floor of the Home Economics Building between March 16 and April 10, 2015.
