About The project

The Mint Museum has been collecting historic and contemporary fashions for over 40 years. Fashion is one of the most engaging and meaningful art forms, with rich aesthetic and cultural associations through the ages. Beginning this fall, you are invited to join the Mint in its celebration of the “Year of Fashion.”

  • William Ivey Long: Costume Designs 2007-2016 , September 23, 2017 - June 3, 2018, Mint Museum Uptown. Celebrate Broadway’s Tony Award-winning costume designer, featuring ensembles by this N.C. native from shows including “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.”
  • Charlotte Collects: Contemporary Couture and Fabulous Fashion , October 14, 2017 -February 4, 2018, Mint Museum Randolph. Take an intimate look at important designs in the collections of several fashion leaders in the Charlotte community, from exquisite creations by Giambattista Valli to innovative designs by Issey Miyake.
  • The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, March 31 - June 24, 2018, Mint Museum Randolph. Organized in close collaboration with the House of Oscar de la Renta and curated by André Leon Talley, former American editor-at-large for Vogue, the exhibition is anticipated to contain dozens of fashions made during the span of de la Renta’s career in Spain, Paris, and New York.
