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 collection includes over 18,000 items. Between February and August of 2013, the entire collection was packed and moved to a new facility on the UNT Campus.

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.

About the Digital Collection

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.

Digitization efforts have been generously supported by Gloria and Bruzzy Westheimer, as well as the UNT Diamond Eagles Society, a group whose gifts are pooled together to fund an annual high-impact campus project. The TFC was chosen as the recipient of Diamond Eagles project funding in 2020.
