High Fashion to the High Plains

March 4, 2023- Spring 2024

The exhibit features the variety of fashion garments that have made their way to the Texas Panhandle, and a look into who owned them. From the first fashion label, who was Charles Frederick Worth and a garment that could only be purchased in France, to smaller designers carried in Texas retailers; PPHMs textiles all tell a story. From high fashion designers such as Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta to smaller designers such as Lilli Diamond, each garment is a unique piece of history relating to the Texas Panhandle.
Designers included: Emilio Pucci, Chanel, Charles Frederick Worth, Lilli Diamond, and more. Locals included: Betty Teel Bivins Lovell, Irene Wilson Parks, Sybil B. Harrington, and Marie Rowland Doane Finklea Hamilton, amongst others.
