To celebrate Vassar College’s 150th anniversary, the Vassar College Costume Collection shared student research about the complex role that education has played to influence fashion. The exhibition ran from from May 19 – June 12, and showcased student clothing from the 1860′s to 1950′s and photographs of student styles from the 1960′s to today. Luckily, Vassar created an online exhibition for those of us unable to attend! Below are a few samples of its offerings, and visit the online exhibition here.

Just what I needed for my research! Thanks for showing this Evangeline. I wish I had known about the exhibition because I would have definitely have schlepped up to Poughkeepsie on Amtrack.
You’re welcome! I came across information about the exhibit, and was glad to see they planned to put it online for those of us who couldn’t make the trip to Vassar.
