Fashion Organization Records, 1978-2012View associated digital content.

Predominant Dates: 2005-2010

The Fashion Organization Records consist of materials reflecting the activities and administration of the Oregon State University Fashion Organization (OSUFO) and are comprised of financial records, organizational records, correspondence, ephemera, newspaper clippings, audio-visual material, and photographs and slides. Previously known as the Fashion Group International-Student Chapter, OSUFO was a fee-funded student organization that organized fashion-related events on campus, including the annual Recycled Fashion Show. The group was established as the Fashion and Design Students club (FADS) in 1983, and disbanded sometime between 2012 and 2015.

Photographs of the Recycled Fashion Shows in 2009 and 2010 in this collection are digitzed and available upon request. Other audio-visual materials documenting the 2008 commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the Design and Human Environment program (which began in 1908 as the Department of Domestic Art) include footage of the Century of Design fashion show; a design exhibition of Department of Design and Human Environment projects, including those to be featured at the fashion show; and interviews with the student designers. These videos are available online on MediaSpace.
