It's all coming back to me


"Style Tribes: Fashions from the 1960s" is on exhibition in the Mary Alice Gallery, Morrill Hall, through April 22. Photo by Bob Elbert.


Feeling nostalgic for the '60s? More specifically, some of those one-of-a-kind fashions? As a textiles/clothing fall class project, five Iowa State juniors and seniors curated an exhibition for Morrill Hall's Mary Alice Gallery that pays tribute to four style "tribes" – or subcultures – that prevailed in the 1960s. Reminisce over examples from each of the tribes: optical art, space age mods, collegiate/professional and the environment – exemplified in this photo featuring paper dresses.

The exhibition, the first curated by undergraduates for class, runs through April 22. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with afternoon hours the weekends of April 14-15 and 21-22.
