Our fashion choices are shaped by societal and social circumstances, and this last year serves as an obvious example of that notion.

In “Fashion in Residence,” a new exhibition at NorthPark Center, see how social changes have affected wardrobes over the past century, CultureMap reported.

“From transforming homes into venues for entertaining during Prohibition in the 1920s to the COVID-19 pandemic reshaping our living spaces into primary sites for leisure, our wardrobes have long responded to changing demands of our times,” says Annette Becker, the director of the Texas Fashion Collection in the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design, which is supplying the pieces for our viewing pleasure.

The display, which lasts until June 6, includes 14 womenswear styles by designers such as Lilly Pulitzer, Emilio Pucci, Geoffrey Beene and Todd Oldham.

Admission to “Fashion in Residence” is free. The exhibition is located between Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s on the first floor.
