In November, the Brenau University Historic Clothing Collection added a large donation of exhibition materials from Lori J. Durante and the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History in Delray Beach, Florida. 

Charity Armstead, fashion merchandising program director and assistant professor, applied for this donation through the Costume Society of America and was delighted for Brenau to be selected as the recipient. The university was  given a total of over 60 mannequins and dress forms, which were very needed, as well as display cabinets, large exhibit wall panels, and acrylic vitrines and pedestals in a variety of sizes. 

Armstead said she is looking forward to using these in Brenau’s next fashion exhibition. Stay tuned for updates!
