"Fashion Forward: Centering Justice in Fashion History" an online exhibit that confronts traditional museum practices. By reinterpreting a selection of objects in the ISU Textiles and Clothing Museum with a social justice lens, including cultural appropriation, racial inequities, shifting masculinities, women and feminism, socio-economic carriers and environmental justice, stories arise that were previously left out of the mainstream narrative.
