Explore the Textile & Costume Collection with Follow the Thread, a new blog from the Design Center

The Textile & Costume Collection is now easier than ever to explore! Follow the Thread, a new blog managed by The Design Center, highlights the remarkable holdings of the university’s Textile & Costume Collection.

With Follow the Thread, pieces of the collection come off the hangers and onto your computer screen! With each post, you’ll get an in-depth look at the holdings, learning about the designers and makers, the cultural significance of objects, the technological advances they represent, and of course, the person who might have worn, used, or kept the item.     

Follow the Thread will be updated weekly. To subscribe, navigate to the blog where you’ll find the “Subscribe” box on the right-hand side of any of the pages.
