Threads magazine - 189 - Feb./Mar. 2017 Issue

New York City is known for its fashion schools and museums with fabulous collections of historical garments. But the Big Apple has competition upstate, in the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection and Research Center at Syracuse University. What is unique about this collection, compared with those of larger institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, is that it focuses on American-made garments by famous designers such as Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Mary McFadden, and Pauline Trigère. Learn more about the Genet collection in this article from Threads #189 (February/March 2017).
