Shape Up: Case Studies in Fashion Making 

September 23 - December 8, 2019

Showcasing traditional ceremonial costumes from Africa and Japan and western garments from the UC Davis Jo Ann C. Stabb Design Collection, this exhibition reveals the hidden structures, patterns and shaping methods that underlie fashion creation. Blending functionality and style, three sections— “Tailored Silhouettes,” “Untrimmed Contours” and “New Dimensions”— acknowledge the long-lasting artisanship behind how clothing was shaped and its influential role in today’s design practice.
