Hang in There! Fashioning Storage Mounts for Costume


The Museum at FIT’s conservation team addressed sculptural and oversized pieces that cannot be stored on average hangers in a paper titled "Hang in There! Fashioning Storage Mounts for Costume," which they presented at the 7th International Mountmakers Forum on October 28, 2020.
In this video, conservator Ann Coppinger describes a mount to support strapless garments and explains how two customized hanging mounts for recently acquired Comme des Garçons ensembles were made.
