Texas Fashion Collection
What's Inside this Collection.
The UNT Texas Fashion Collection is dedicated to the preservation and documentation of historically significant fashion, and serves as an educational and inspirational resource for students, researchers, and the general public. This vital resource is part of the UNT College of Visual Arts + Design.
About the Physical Collection
The collection of top designers' works began in 1938 through the efforts of Stanley and Edward Marcus. The Dallas Fashion Group saw that it came to UNT in 1972 to support a growing fashion design program. Today, the facility in Scoular Hall houses more than 15,000 items of historic dress in a 4,500 square foot climate-controlled space.
At this time, the Texas Fashion Collection is undergoing extensive inventory and documentation in preparation for providing online access to all objects that have been photographed.

The number of Texas Fashion Collection items presented in the UNT Digital Library is growing every day, so please visit often to see the latest additions.
