This picture gallery shows my final project from History of Contemporary Fashion. After midterms, we chose a time period that we were interested in, picked a garment, researched it to prove it validity and then worked on presevation and presentation. During finals week, we presented our research and garment to our class and invited guests. My time period was the 1950's and I showed research on world events, West Virginia event, Fairmont/Marion County events, and Fairmont State University events.
History of Contemporary Fashion required a final project in taking an original garment from a certain time period, restoring the garment, and validating that it was actually from that time period. After research and restoration, students presented their projects to the class and invited guests. The garment featured above was my choice for the time period of the 1950's.
