Okanagan Heritage Museum

Spring Fashion: From Collections to the Catwalk

March 7, 2024 to May 26, 2024
Okanagan Heritage Museum

Strut on down and check out some of our favourite spring fashions!

The Kelowna Museums Society has a vast textile collection that has largely gone unseen – until now.

Our newest exhibition provides an exciting opportunity to showcase some of our 2,500 pieces of clothing, as well as shoes, hats, handbags and other accessories. The exhibition also highlights the role the museum plays in collecting objects that help tell the story of our community. 

Join us in celebrating the rich colours and patterns of spring fashion from decades past. Critique the catwalk outfits, peek behind the scenes of a fashion show and see if you can change clothes as quickly as a model — then strike a pose!

Be inspired by the fashions of the past!

Join us for the Opening Celebration on March 14.
