MN Fashion Week at The Goldstein Museum of Design

The Goldstein Museum Of Design: A Resource For Designers An Introduction to the GMD collection for designers' reference will take place on September 19, 6-7 p.m., with a party and reception following from 7-9 p.m. in 333 McNeal Hall.

The Goldstein Museum of Design's collection of over 18,500 apparel items from around the world can inform and inspire contemporary designers.

As part of MN Fall Fashion Weekend, assistant curator Jean McElvain will present three examples to illustrate ways that designers can use the collection as a point of departure.

  1. Dress from the 1920s will show how a particular era can inform designers.

  2. The Little Black Dress will show how designers have interpreted the archetypal dress, spanning many styles.

  3. The designs of Bonnie Cashion will illustrate how studying the successful continuity of a single designer can inform your work.
