Sporting Fashion: Outdoor Girls From 1800 To 1960
When: March 18th, 2021
Where: Cummer Museum
829 Riverside Ave
Jacksonville, FL

Sporting Fashion: Outdoor Girls from 1800 to 1960 will be the first exhibition to explore the evolution of women’s sporting attire in Western fashion over this 160 year period. Beginning with the turn of the 19th century, when women ventured outside the domestic sphere to partake in outdoor activities, and concluding with the mid-20th century, when the basic forms of women’s sportswear we know today were codified, this exhibition will trace the accessories and garments that defined women’s participation in the sporting world as athletes and spectators. Examining the competiting priorities of fashion, function, and property, Outdoor Girls will feature approximately 65 full accessorized ensembles and a selecion of sport-related accessiories and ephemera, all drawn from the exceptional collections of FIDM Museum at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Los Angeles. This exhibition represents an unprecedented opportunity for a significant portion of the FIDM Museum’s extensive holdings, which are marked by their outstanding design merit, to be seen outside of Los Angeles.
