Windows into Traditional World Dress
January 24, 2022
Fashion Merchandising and Design students work with clothing artifacts from the Oris Glisson Historic Costume and Textile Collection as part of a Clothing and People class project to create a window display exhibiting traditional garments from Japan, China, and Korea. Led by assistant professor and director of the collection, Dina Smith-Glaviana, the students mount garments on forms, giving them dimension using various form pieces such as shoulder and bust pads, and arms. In addition to dressing forms, vintage kimonos are hung on wooden dowels and arranged in the main window to create an eye-catching display.
