From stays, corsets, and bustles to designer bras and bustiers, foundations have shaped not only the history of fashion but also the way we see ourselves. Undergarments, which molded the silhouette, and body linens, which protected expensive outer clothing from body oils, were once hidden beneath historic fashions. Today, they have made the transition to outerwear. Enjoy a look at the design inspirations for today’s bustiers, skirts, and shirts in this Costume Society of America Book on the Wall, the Historic Fashions Calendar for 2003. A portion of calendar sales benefit Costume Society of America's programs and awards.This year's calendar features twelve North American costume collections and their objects of dress and appearance: Karen Augusta Antique Lace & Fashion; the MDD Collection; the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History; American Costume Studies; Iowa State University's Costume and Textile Collection; the Fairfield, Connecticut, Historical Society; the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame; the Historic Costume Collection at the University of Texas at Austin's Department of Theatre and Dance; the Commercial Pattern Archive of the Rhode Island Library; Kentucky Historical Society; Colorado State University; and the Vincent Collection.
