Exhibitions & Events

While the Texas Fashion Collection's facilities do not currently include dedicated exhibition space, the TFC has organized numerous exhibitions and regularly facilitates artifact loans to cultural institutions around the world. Past and current partnerships have resulted in a number of robust displays relating to design and social history. Dress objects represented range from international cultural dress to French haute couture to American ready-to-wear — and have been organized in traditional museum spaces and unconventional public venues. 

If your institution is interested in borrowing artifacts for an exhibition in a conservationally stable and secure location, please contact Annette Becker, TFC director.

The innovative designs and designers featured in Fashion Forward found their way from international fashion houses to closets in Texas. From fashion-forward trends to classic wardrobe staples the exhibition draws primarily from the UNT College of Visual Arts and Design's Texas Fashion Collection, one of the most significant fashion archives in the U.S.
