Exhibit December 5 with Retro-Themed Party
STOWE, VT (November 17, 2014)— The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum opens a new exhibit entitled Slope Style; Fashion on Snow 1930-2014, Friday December 5th. The Slope Style exhibit documents the exciting evolution of ski and snowboard fashion from the 1930s to the present.
According to museum curator, Meredith Scott, “The Slope Style exhibit idea was born from the recent acquisition of twenty-five iconic ski outfits from former Bogner ski model, Sandra Heath. By showcasing these items, memorabilia from Sandra’s modeling days, as well as other important pieces from the museum’s collection we will show a fun and definitive exhibit of snow sports fashion.”
The museum will bring thirty-five fully accessorized vintage outfits to life, including a special section devoted to iconic Vermont ski fashion brands such as Burton, Slalom, CB Sports, Bogner and Overdrive. The exhibit runs through October 2015.
The public is invited to dig out their retro-themed ski and snowboard apparel and join the museum from 7-9 pm to kick off this yearlong exhibit. Prizes will be awarded to attendees wearing the best vintage outfits, accessories or their oldest ski pass. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served and there will be a cash bar. Please make a donation at the door.
Major exhibit sponsors include, Green Mountain Fine Art Gallery in Stowe, Jann & Chuck Perkins for The Alpine Shop, Darn Tough Socks, Helmet Huggers, The Ski Rack and Orage.
