October 2009 (3rd Floor, Alison Hall West)
Curated by Dilia López-Gydosh (Curator of the Collection)
This exhibition was a tribute to Sally Rinard, a native of Wilmington, Delaware who became an award-winning fashion journalist and published poet and novelist. She began her career writing for the women's department of The News Journal, and later wrote for Good Housekeeping and Women's Wear Daily. During her career, she interviewed people as varied as Henry Kissinger, Barbara Walters, Norman Mailer, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The exhibition featured some of the designer garments that she donated to the Collection, including dresses designed by Diane von Furstenberg, Elie Tahari, and BCBG.
