Syracuse University Collection

What brought me to Syracuse last week was a trip to the university to lecture to the fashion design students about footwear history. I also had the opportunity to see their Sue Ann Genet costume collection, which is amazingly good. I didn’t take any photos in the storerooms, but there were racks and racks of 20th century fashions ranging from Edwardian evening gowns to Bill Blass jackets beaded by Lesage in Paris. Jeffrey Mayer, Professor of Fashion Designer and Curator of the costume collection showed Kenn and I around storage, as well as their exhibition about winter fashion currently on display:
