- Ethnographic or traditional folk dress will be represented by a variety of artifacts including embroidered everyday garments from the Hill Tribes of the Golden Triangle area of Thailand.
- The Collection’s historic fashion artifacts will be represented by such garments as a late 19th century print silk and velvet-trimmed day dress made by a Newark, Ohio, modiste.
