GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- Students from Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University's Pamella Roland DeVos School of Fashion are showcasing their designs at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
It's all part of a new fashion exhibit called Inspired Style.
This new exhibit is a collaborative fashion project, where students used the Museum's fashion Collection for inspiration to create new, modern interpretations of the historic pieces.
Nine students each chose a garment from the Museum's Collections from different decades spanning the 1850s to 1950s. Their new pieces incorporate elements of the historic garments into their own original work, resulting in a modern artistic interpretation.
Visitors will examine the various details of both the students' pieces and the historic garments they drew inspiration from.
This exhibit is located in the Circle Theater, on the Museum's third floor, and will run through January 8, 2017. Admission to this exhibit will be included with general admission to the Museum.
