Abstract

The College of Applied Human Sciences was created in 1986 to promote the well-being of people and the environment in which they live, through education, research, and community service. In 2001, the Department of Design and Merchandising from the College of Applied Human Sciences held a fashion show in honor of Mr. Blackwell, one of the most important American designers to come from the West Coast. This fashion show was an opportunity for students to design pieces inspired by Mr. Blackwell's designs and construction. The Colorado State University Historic Costume and Textile Museum owns more than eighty of Mr. Blackwell's labels, scrapbooks, and master patterns. This collection contains primarily VHS tapes that document the college's activities, including many tapes of the Blackwell fashion show. Digitized items are available in the Blackwell Collection in Mountain Scholar.
