Inside Her Clothes

June 3 – September 3, 2017

inside her clothes


Co-Curators: Jean McElvain & Sarah Hegge

When you buy a piece of clothing, how often do you look at the inside?If you are told that a garment is “well made,” what does that really mean?When you buy something, can you tell if it will last for years, or will fall to pieces in a season?Advances in technology over the past 200 years have made clothing faster and cheaper to make, but at the same time we expect less, in terms of fit and quality, of our clothing than ever before.Most of these changes aren’t obvious when looking through fashion magazines or when the clothes are being worn.However, if you when you turn to the interior of a garment the story becomes visible.
