The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) is partnering with Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University’s (KCAD’s) Pamella Roland DeVos School of Fashion to open a new fashion exhibit, Inspired Style, on August 6. This new exhibit is a collaborative fashion project, where students used the Museum’s fashion Collection for inspiration to create new, modern interpretations of the historic pieces.
Nine students each chose a garment from the Museum’s Collections from different decades spanning the 1850s to 1950s. Their new pieces incorporate elements of the historic garments into their own original work, resulting in a modern artistic interpretation.
Visitors will be able to examine the various details of both the students’ pieces and the historic garments they drew inspiration from.
