Duluth, Minn. (Oct. 26, 2015) — The Tweed Museum of Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth is hosting a culturally-specific fashion show which offers a collection of traditional skirts, including beaded accessories, that has traveled to five venues around Minnesota before ending its tour at the Tweed on Friday, Oct. 30, 2015 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The show brings to life an era when apparel changed dramatically for Native people in the Great Lakes region. Project director and designer Delina White will host the program while providing a narration with projected photographs to illuminate the history of the woman’s traditional skirt. Historically, such skirts were worn particularly for special gatherings such as pow-wows and ceremonies.
