NEW ALBANY, IN (Oct. 1, 2013) – Global fashion is still in style at Indiana University Southeast. The Global Garments Galore Exhibit is extending its stay at the IU Southeast Library through October due to its popularity.
The exhibit, co-sponsored by the Center for Cultural Resources (CCR) and the IU Southeast Library, opened on Aug. 13, 2013. Originally scheduled to end last month, it will now be on display through the month of October in the first floor Art Gallery.
The Global Garments Exhibit features more than 50 garments from the six world areas of cultures found in the CCR. Each garment features captions that allow viewers to guide themselves throughout the gallery. Among the pieces on display are a handmade Japanese kimono designed for an attendant at the coronation of a Japanese emperor and a dress crocheted by women from a village in Zimbabwe.
The garments were donated to the exhibit from various sources including IU southeast faculty and staff, as well as community members.
In conjunction with Global Garments is a collection titled “Scarves Tie the Fashion World” and instructions for tying variations from around the world. The CCR is also showing a collection called “Global Hats and Bags.”
Global Garments Galore is free to the public and open during regular library business hours. The Center for Cultural Resources is open to guests during library hours throughout the year. Users may also reserve and check out resources by attending a brief orientation session.
