Some great vintage finds at the Guelph Civic Museum! We've met Ken and Jonathan, the charming gents behind the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge several times at Meow! and at Chat Noir, and we are thrilled to see parts of their collection in our town:
Open Drawers, 2009: Highlights from the Fashion History Museum's First Year of Acquisitions
Guelph Civic Museum hosts a very special exhibit from August 15 to September 6, 2009.
This special display from the collection of the Fashion History Museum includes items ranging from a late 18th century dressing table from the Liberty's of London family to fashions by Worth, Biba, Westwood and Versace. Also featured is a dress by Jessica Biffi, the young Canadian designer who appeared on Project Runway Canada. The dress was made from Biffi's design for the "Winners Challenge" on the television program and will inaugurate the Fashion History Museum's collection of contemporary Canadian clothing known as the History in the Making Collection.
The exhibit runs from August 15 to September 6, 2009. The Guelph Civic Museum is open daily from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
