Fashion Week Presents: JEANS the Fashion EDGE Exhibit, Austin, Thursday, 01. March 2018
JEANS THE FASHION EDGE explores the multifaceted history of denim and its relationship with high fashion from the 19th century to the present. The exhibition features more than 50 objects from the Costume Collection Society, many of which have never been on view. In addition to the history of jeans, Denim examines a variety of denim garments—from work wear to couture—in order to shed new light on how a particular style of woven cotton has come to dominate the clothing industry and the way people dress around the globe.
