GEORGE STAVROPOULOS

George Stavropoulos was a Greek-American designer whose career in New York lasted from 1962 until 1990. He was friends with the Museum founders and donated a number of his dresses to the Museum during his lifetime. After his death, nearly 150 of his dresses were given to the Museum along with his sketches and photographs of many of his collections. The Museum's exhibit "Stavropoulos" takes advantage of the strength of the collection as well as his archives. The archives are currently housed in the June F. Mohler Fashion Library in Rockwell Hall.
