Roelse conducts research on historic wedding dressRoelse conducts research on historic wedding dress3/11/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>​In 1953, American couturier Ann Lowe designed the wedding dress for future First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier’s marriage to John F. Kennedy, a dress that became one of the most recognizable and beloved wedding dresses in America. As a Black designer, Lowe didn’t receive proper credit for her work at the time. <strong>Katya Roelse</strong>, instructor in fashion and apparel studies, and Winterthur textile conservator Kate Sahmel recently visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston together to examine and document the construction of the original dress, which is too fragile to display on a form. Working with University students, Roelse will use the information gathered from this visit to create a reproduction of the dress for the Winterthur exhibition <em>Ann Lowe: American Couturier</em>, opening September 2023.<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#6db99fdb-00c1-4351-83a6-46de89e19c2d;L0|#06db99fdb-00c1-4351-83a6-46de89e19c2d|Research;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=163

Lu will work with team members from the trade center, which is operated by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations, and associated agencies to understand fashion brands and retailers’ sourcing practices and identify trade policy options to help LDCs go through their transition. The WTO has reported that graduating from LDC status is an important milestone for a country, but the resulting loss of special international support measures can create new challenges for development and trade.​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#c38b0057-2b90-41e0-8099-c52275f2be5d;L0|#0c38b0057-2b90-41e0-8099-c52275f2be5d|Public Service;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2021.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=83
