Featuring over 200 pages of brilliant photography, the Spectrum of Fashion catalogue contains nearly 100 stories of Marylanders spanning four centuries. Essays offering new perspectives on iconic American designer Claire McCardell, internationally-famed couturière Lottie Barton, and previously untold stories of American livery are revealed in this lavishly illustrated publication.
The catalogue marks the first full-color publication devoted to celebrating the Fashion Archives at MCHC. It is made possible through the generosity of Barbara P. Katz, PNC Bank and the Baltimore National Heritage Area.
