Drexel University's Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection (FHCC) of the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design will showcase the many revolving styles of women’s suits with its next exhibition Suit Yourself! 75 Years of Powerful Style Friday, opening Oct. 11 through Thursday, March 13.

The exhibition will feature elegant ensembles crafted by Gilbert Adrian in the 1940s; iconic Chanel suits embraced by the working women of the 1950s – and reinvented by Karl Lagerfeld. Pantsuits of the 1970s will be on display with a contemporary update by Argent alongside pieces from the “pioneer of power dressing” Giorgio Armani. Alexander McQueen’s masterful Savile Row tailoring will be represented alongside many other celebrated designers.
