University Archives Photographs, no item number assigned. Picnic Day fashion show in library Sunken Garden.

Look Familiar???

This week we are featuring a previously undiscovered photograph from the University Archives.  It appears to be of a fashion held on campus.  What we don’t know is when it was held.  When did the tradition of a fashion show on Picnic Day begin?   Could this be during a Picnic Day?  Who held the fashion show?  Was this a senior showcase or open to any and all design students?  Who were these models?  Where was this held?  This looks to have been in the courtyard of the library.  Before the courtyard we currently have in Shields Library was enclosed by additional library wings many events were held in the courtyard.  Assuming this is where the fashion show was held was this a unique or annual occurrence?  Any and all information is welcome!
