Since 1966 the museum has been collecting over 8,000 objects from across the history of fashion, making Phoenix Art Museum one of the few museums in the nation with such an extensive collection.
For those visiting this summer through August 7, 2016, guests can see some beautiful examples of historical fashion from French Renaissance, to the roaring twenties and hip sixties. Works include Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy & Chanel. This exhibit is a magnificent collection and includes a display of shoes from different time periods.
Make a day of it and roam around the contemporary displays on the South wing for an afternoon of delight and respite from the afternoon sun.
