Kansas City's Historic Garment District

Trailside Center, 99th and Holmes. Ann Brownfield, the curator of the Historic Garment Center Museum downtown, will present a great program on the history of the garment industry in KC.  You, or somebody in your family, might have worked in the garment industry...or wore garments manufactured in Kansas City….it was huge from the 40’s into the 60’s.  All will show some garments from that era made by KC folks.  Please pass the word.  She has written a book about her experiences.  Ann, Jan Ahern, and Gary Swanson interviewed on videotape more than 40 of the early garment industry pioneers, or their descendants.
