My high school fashion marketing students will be curating a collection of vintage clothing and then showcasing their work at an exhibit. This project has been appropriately titled “Curating in the Classroom”.
So how can you help?
1) Donating your vintage clothing or monetary donations:
A. Ideally these items would pre-date the year 2000
B. Items do not need to be in pristine condition considering this will be a hands on learning tool
C. All monetary donations will go towards purchasing supplemental garments that are lacking from the collection as well as tools for storing and displaying garments
2) Donating display items i.e. mannequins and dress forms:
A. Instead of discarding your old props (especially mannequins and dress forms) please consider donating them to an educational facet.
