Drexel University Costume Collection

The elaborate costume collection at Drexel University is housed in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. This website brings together archival data and detailed graphics culled from the collection. The hope is that fashion and textile design students, fashion professionals, historic costume scholars, and followers of fashion trends will be able to use these materials to inform their own work. Visitors can use the Search section to look over 3D panoramas and detailed bibliographic records by designer, category, decade, or fabric. It is definitely worth looking at the velvet and wool items under the fabric heading. Design detectives can use the Mystery area to look over items that are a mystery to the researchers here - if they have any clues, they are encouraged to pass them along. Finally, the Digital Gallery area has some fine views of past shows by Geoffrey Beene that appeared on campus.
