Fashion Study Collection

The Fashion Study Collection (FSC) at Columbia College Chicago is an exceptional collection of designer garments, fashion history, and ethnic dress. A hands-on, academic, and inspirational resource for students and the public, the FSC was founded in 1989 and has grown to house more than 6,000 items.

The FSC is dedicated to the collection and documentation of Dress for study and exhibition. It supports teaching and learning across disciplines through the exploration of dress and its relationship to history, culture, art, design, business, and technology.
