Fowler OutSpoken Lecture: Fringe Concepts

A notable element in garments featured in the exhibition Resplendent Dress from Southeastern Europe, fringe originates from the notion of female fertility as depicted by string skirts from the Neolithic period. Using this historical precedent as a starting point, FIDM Museum and Galleries curator Kevin Jones traces the evolution of fringe in dress from ancient times through modern and contemporary high fashion. 

Note: This event was rescheduled from June 1.
