Immigrants, Innovators, and Icons: Jewish Americans and the Fashion Industry Panel

July 11 @ 7:00 pm

Free

From pioneering retailer Carrie Marcus Neiman to custom dressmaker Lilli Wolff, Jewish Americans have made their mark on the fashion industry, particularly so in Dallas. Annette Becker, curator and director of the UNT Texas Fashion Collection, joins us to share stories of Jewish change-makers in twentieth-century dress history, highlighting artifacts from the TFC.

Annette Becker is an arts educator and material culture historian whose research focuses on dress history. She serves as the director of the Texas Fashion Collection, an archive of nearly 20,000 garments and accessories housed within the University of North Texas’s College of Visual Arts and Design. Becker’s curatorial projects and academic programming are informed by her professional experience in cultural institutions around the country, as well as graduate coursework in art history, art education, and history.

This program is presented in conjunction with our current special exhibition, Walk this Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes. This event is free, and tickets are available here: https://dhhrm.my.salesforce-sites.com/ticket/#/events/a0S6e00000h4HmKEAU
