Is your vintage ski apparel just collecting dust in your basement? See it on display with a new museum exhibit.
The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum is seeking assistance from the snowsports community to help source a new exhibit entitled Slope Style; Fashion on Snow 1930-2014. The exhibit, opening November 28, 2014 in Stowe, will document the exciting evolution of ski and snowboard fashion from the 1930s to the present. The museum is currently accepting one-year loans of on-snow or après outfits. A number of sponsorship packages and partnership opportunities are also available to support the exhibit.
According to museum curator, Meredith Scott, “The Slope Style exhibit idea was born from the recent acquisition of twenty-five iconic ski outfits from former Bogner model, Sandra Heath. By showcasing these items, as well as other important pieces from the museum’s permanent collection and loaned items we hope to build a definitive exhibit of snow sports fashion.”
The museum is encouraging businesses and individuals to share one or more of their favorite fully accessorized vintage outfits from their personal collections. The outfit will be highlighted in a pre-exhibit opening fashion show and displayed for one year on life-like mannequins. Each outfit will include anecdotes, images, and memorabilia showcasing the sponsor’s association with the snow sports industry.
