WHAT IS THE FASHION ARCHIVES?
The Shippensburg University Fashion Archives & Museum is a unique educational laboratory and museum dedicated to enhancing an understanding of society through the study of costume. The Archives collects, preserves and interprets, in its historical and societal context, its holdings of apparel and related objects, which range from the 18th century to the present, with emphasis on items associated with middle-class and working Americans and with Pennsylvanians. Visit the Fashion Archives website.
The Archives is committed to sharing its diverse collections with students and faculty as well as the general public, for teaching, research and exhibition purposes.
Gifts to the Fashion Archives endowment help to ensure that the organization will continue to maintain museum-quality stewardship of current holdings and future acquisitions, mount public exhibitions of its collection, integrate its collection into the classroom, provide students with valuable experiences in exhibit management, and sponsor lectures, workshops and other public programs, among other things.
