Archives Week Launch - August 27.2013

September 27, 7 pm, Edmonton City Hall: Looking Good Alberta! A Celebration of Fashion Inspired by Archives

The ASA will be collaborating with Edmonton and area archives as well as various heritage organizations to put on a fashion show that highlights costumes inspired by archival holdings. This fashion show is a rare opportunity to see how fashion has evolved in Alberta since the late 1800s. The costumes were all inspired by photographs, patterns, and drawings found in Alberta’s archives.  The event includes an exhibit with the calendar images and the Archives Calendar 2014 will be available for purchase.
