The CHS’s Fashion & Textile Council programs offer a unique opportunity to connect with the costume collections of the CHS, learn from experts, visit regional repositories, and meet other fashionistas who share your passion for history.
Subscribe to a year of programming that offers you exclusive access to our CHS collections. CHS members at any level can join the Fashion & Textiles Council with a $150 annual Council subscription fee. Your fee supports the Council’s programming efforts and with a one-time subscription fee, you will not be asked to pay additionally for any Council programs held at the CHS.
