For over thirty years, the Fashion Resource Center (FRC) has maintained a unique collection of designer garments and accessories that represent extreme innovation, experimental designs and construction details. The Collection consists of over 1,400 garments that highlight emerging designers and the ever-changing nature of fashion. In addition to the modern garments, the Fashion Resource Center includes a selection of nineteenth-century foundation garments, lingerie, shoes, and other accessories. The FRC also has more than 3,200 fashion publications and periodicals. The Textile Resource Center (TRC) opened in 2013, is an object-based study collection in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The collection consists of over 400 textile objects from more than 30 countries and over 2,000 books. These two SAIC hybrid research centers team up to provide tours of both collections.
