DHCC Fashion Friday
Due to strong interest in our Drexel Historic Costume Collection (DHCC), we are launching quarterly, full-day Fashion Friday events with educational seminars on fashion history and a specialized viewing of this amazing collection of more than 12,000 garments and accessories worn by such notables as Greta Garbo, Babe Paley and Princess Grace.
The first DHCC Fashion Friday event will be held Friday, October 25th from 9:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the URBN Center (3501 Market St., Philadelphia) with a seminar on the History of 1920s Fashion. Tickets for the full-day event cost $100 for the full day, including lunch. Drexel alumni can purchase tickets for a discount price of $85. All proceeds to benefit the Drexel Historic Costume Collection.

The History of 1920s Fashion seminar, by DHCC Curator Clare Sauro, takes an extended look at the fashions of the jazz age – a period when fashionable women abandoned the restrictive clothing styles of previous generations. Fashions from this era have become popular again thanks to hit TV shows Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire and Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby.
