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
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.
