Dolly Parton‘s iconic outfits will be displayed in a special exhibition at Lipscomb University this fall.
“Dolly Parton and the Makers: My Life in Rhinestones,” presented by the University’s Department of Fashion and Design, will run from October 31 through December 9 at the John C. Hutcheson Gallery in the Beaman Library.
This exhibition will feature 25 outfits from Parton’s new fashion-focused book, “Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones.”
Set for release October 17 via Ten Speed Press/Penguin Random House, the book is available for preorder at https://dolly.lnk.to/BehindTheSeams.
The exhibit is curated by Parton’s archivist Rebecca Seaver.
Iisha Lemming will serve as Artist-in-Residence for the Department of Fashion & Design this fall to assist in the development and execution of the exhibit.
“Iisha Lemming has worked for me over 15 years and is the artist-in-residence at Lipscomb University,” said Parton. “Iisha and Rebecca Seaver have put together this display celebrating the makers of these clothes and 25 of my favorite looks celebrating the people who make it all happen.”
Tickets for the fashion exhibition will cost $25 for a 45-minute tour.
