Description

When Kay King established the Fashion Archive in 1984, she donated her collection of ethnic and international garments. This substantial contribution paved the way to what became HCC
Fashion Archive, International Holdings, presenting traditional costumes from around the globe. This collection contains not only womenswear and menswear, but also accessories and textiles from Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. Apart from our most delicate pieces, these items are available to students and visitors for examination and research.
