HCC Fashion Design students produce spectacular garments every year, either as part of their graduating collection or as stand-alone competition entries. Occasionally, students donate these garments to the Archive. Thirty-five years after its original inception, HCC Fashion Archive has collected enough of these donations to form the Alumni Fund, a portion of which is presented here.
