Celebrating 100 Years of Girl Scouting, 1912–2012
March 9 – June 1, 2012
What do American fashion designers Bill Blass, Halston and Mainbocher have in common with the Girl Scouts of America? Their uniforms of course! While on first appearance one might not consider a uniform to be a garment that makes a fashion statement, Girl Scout uniforms do reflect historical American fashion trends. Not only do the uniforms reflect fashion throughout their 100 year history, the Girl Scouts organization actively partnered with leading names in the fashion industry to design and create their uniforms. This exhibition showcases these partnerships.
