Historical & Special Collections is pleased to announce that the new exhibit, What (Not) to Wear: Fashion and the Law is now on view in the Caspersen Room on the fourth floor of Langdell Hall.
Though law and fashion may not initially seem like overlapping domains, given the central nature of each of these fields to our lives, it is no surprise that they do have an impact on one another. Over the centuries, fashion has been important to decisions about how jurists visually demonstrate their expertise, and law has served to circumscribe how fashion is created, distributed, and consumed.
What Not to Wear: Fashion and the Law, guest curated by research library staff Mindy Kent, Meg Kribble, and Carli Spina (now of Boston College!), is on view in the HLS Library Caspersen Room daily 9am-5pm through August 12, 2016.
Can’t get to Cambridge? Our online exhibit is now available as well!
