I love exploring the costumes and accessories found in the ARTstor Digital Library. From umbrellas to hats, evening gowns to shoes, there is so much to look at! Sometimes it’s the colors or the design that catch my attention, but for this dress it’s the texture. I can’t get over all these feathers. Lucy Sawyer, Communications Specialist.
