Funding Fashion: Help Purchase a Dugi – Nov. 8

Designs by Orlando Dugi

The Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising invites the public to enjoy a reception with Native American fashion designer Orlando Dugi on Nov. 8, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the museum.

The ticketed event with Dugi at the museum will raise money toward the purchase of at least one of his dresses for the Avenir’s permanent collection. The cost to attend is $35.

Guests can register and donate at the event website.

Dugi’s visit to CSU is part of the University’s celebration of Native American Heritage Month. The Santa Fe based fashion designer combines beading and feather work from his Diné (Navajo) heritage with sophisticated modern silhouettes to create unique moments of fantasy. His exhibition at the Avenir Museum presents examples of his women’s evening wear and handbags in an exploration of the evolution of this unique designer.

The Avenir Museum is located at 216 E. Lake St. More information on the Dugi exhibit and other events and programs is available on the Avenir Museum website.

The Avenir Museum is part of the Department of Design and Merchandising in CSU’s College of Health and Human Sciences.
