CAA thanks all who attended the Tour of SAIC’s Fashion Resource Center on April 26.  11 people attended and saw a lot of cool materials from their 3,200 fashion publications, scholarly texts, fashion magazines, contemporary designer biographies & interviews, and more than 800 videos of ready-to-wear and couture runway presentations, technical instruction, interviews, fashion history, and annual student fashion shows. Alex Aubry, the Director of the Fashion Resource Center, also showed us samples from their garment collection.

If you missed this event, don’t worry – there will be more events throughout the year at a variety of dates, times, and locations.

    A wonderful tour of (I suspect) a little known resource for the Chicago area. This beautiful study collection (both traditional library materials and clothing collection) is unique and well worth knowing about. The curator, Alex Aubry, was warm and welcoming and excited about the great collection he oversees and grows.
