Historical Modes: Design Inspirations

Exhibition Dates: October 1, 1993 - May 1, 1994

To highlight Louisiana State University's apparel design program, its student design accomplishments, and the importance of historic dress as inspiration in the design process, the works of three School of Human Ecology students were chosen for Design Inspiration.  Each student's project was paired with its corresponding inspiration pieces from the museum's holdings and represented the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s decades.  A series of student-produced illustrations diagrammed the step-by-step design process involved, from initial idea to final product.
