Native Haute Couture



Native Americans have always had a sense of fashion and refined adornment well before the haute couture fashion runway. Prior to European contact, well established indigenous trade routes throughout North and Central American carried copper, prized dyed quills, carved bones, and drilled cut shells to embellish custom clothing. Learn more about Native American fashion through this year long exhibit.
