“There was a time when Arizona’s Chic Fashion was written about and taken to destinations all around the world! Visitors were enamored by the western and southwest themed styles as well as the comfortable cotton fabrics and bright colors that were made for our desert sun. This exhibit will explore the local look of Arizona Chic as well as the international designer dresses that were sold in many high fashion boutiques. From the high toned Goldwaters department store to the trading posts on Arizona’s reservations, fashion was being created for every fashionista!”
-Curator Robert Black

As curated by Robert Black of Fashion by Robert Black of Scottsdale, AZ, this collection depicts Arizona’s Fashionable past.
