Taken from Mary Mitchell's personal collection of over 1,000 fashion illustrations, the Drawn to Fashion exhibition from 1/28/12 to 5/27/12 at Omaha's Durham Museum will educate visitors about the lost art of fashion illustration. Omaha's rich retail history, and advertising during an era before Photoshop. Designer clothing will be on loan from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Department of Textile, Clothing and Design, plus artifacts related to the process of producing these illustrations for publication. The centerpiece of the exhibit is 150 original images from local fashion illustrator, Mary J. Mitchell, whose work brought to life the promotional efforts of such well-known Omaha clothiers as The Nebraska, Topp's, Goldstein Chapman, Herzbergs, Zoobs, and many others.
