From O’Neill’s and Hutzler’s department stores, to Prettyman and Scarborough halls, the garments in this exhibit represent 150 years of interconnected fashion history between the city of Baltimore and Towson University.
The Department of Theatre Arts Historic Clothing Collection, developed for teaching, sharing, exhibiting and inspiring, features original garments from the early 19th century through the 20th century, when Baltimore was a fashion center for the mid-Atlantic.
