Design Diaries International Fashion Show
The Minnesota History Center has collaborated with the Palestinian Heritage Museum to study historical and contemporary clothing and determine how clothes reflect history, culture and personal beliefs. Though conversation with each other, meetings with textiles historians and guidance from fashion design professionals, girls have created garments to express what they’ve learned through this collaboration. Join us for an innovative fashion event featuring girls from both the Twin Cities and Jerusalem modeling their original garments against the backdrop of media, music and informative displays all curated or created by them to encourage all of us to reflect on the many ways that what we wear represents who we are. Design Diaries International is part of the Museums Connect program, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs that is administered by the American Alliance of Museums.
