About the Exhibition

“Sportswear to Athleisure” draws from the holdings of the Texas Fashion Collection, part of the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design. This exhibition features historic ensembles from iconic sportswear designers Claire McCardell, Vera Maxwell, and Calvin Klein and includes recent acquisitions by Riccardo Tisci, Yohji Yamamoto, Charles Smith II, and Mary Katrantzou.  Together these ensembles demonstrate the chronology of comfortable clothing, from early outdoor leisure fashions to stylish gym-to-street athleisure of today.
