Union-Made: Fashioning America in the 20th Century is a collaboration between the Kheel Center and Cornell Costume and Textile Collection to celebrate 20th century fashion trends alongside the history of organized labor and union labeling efforts in the United States.
The opening reception will include a tour by curators Denise Green and Patrizia Sione, an a cappella rendition of "Look for the Union Label" performed by The Chai Notes, and refreshments! The exhibition features union-made garments, banners, accessories, ephemera, and multi-media to highlight the role unions played to improve working conditions and safety standards, wages, benefits, and promotion of the U.S. fashion industry during the 20th century.
