About The Historic Costume Study Collection at Ursuline College
The Historic Costume Study Collection at Ursuline College covers the gamut of 20thCentury American fashion. Dr. Connie Korosic, Professor and Chair of the Fashion Department and Sister Charlotte Trenkamp, Fashion Department faculty, together founded the Collection in 1984. Today, it houses over 4,000 examples, and serves as a resource for students, faculty, professionals and the community. The Collection is unique in that it is completely hands on-students may actually examine a garment for research documentation. It has also been utilized to provide stage and movie concepts.
