INSIDE OUT: REVEALING CLOTHING'S HIDDEN SECRETS

March 12, 2015 - February 14, 2016

Higbee Gallery | Sara Hume, Curator

The art of creating beautiful custom clothing has always entailed beautiful workmanship that is hidden when the pieces are worn. This exhibition showcases these secret inner-workings that are usually out of sight. Weights, pockets, quilted linings, boning, ruffles and labels all come to light when the garments are flipped inside out. The pieces range from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century and include both men’s and women’s wear.
