I’ve been so lucky to catalog and archive The Stieg Collection
at The Baum School of Art
. About a year ago, the school was gifted the custom-made wardrobe of Mrs. Robert Stieg (Jane). The collection spans from 1958 ““ 1968, and every garment was made especially for her by the Utah Tailoring Mills

Back in November, I started organizing, photographing, and cataloging the collection for teaching purposes. Of course, I also started researching and writing about the collection because it is such a fashion history gem. My enthusiasm has been a bit contagious! Happily, we are celebrating this generous donation by hosting the event VINTAGE.
On Thursday, April 11th, you can join us to learn all about The Stieg Collection. I’ll be giving a short presentation on Jane Stieg, the Utah Tailoring Mills, and how the Baum School of Art is using this resource for their fashion design program. Several pieces from the collection will be on display.
In addition, there will be a chance to buy your vintage treasures. Remedy
, Underwired Vintage
, and Duo Design Studios
will be there with their fabulous merchandise. The event will be at the swanky Cosmopolitan in Allentown. Tickets are available for purchase, just click here
