Mint Museum Randolph

Fashion is an art form. It presents unique statements of creativity that speak to the human passion for beauty, adornment, and identity. These universal attributes extend across time and throughout cultures.

About The Collection

Special note: As of June 2015, the fashion collection is temporarily off view in order to preserve these delicate objects. Please check this website for updates about the reinstallation of the fashion collection.

As of Spring 2014 the Mint Museum has begun an assessment of its Fashion Collection. In order to focus on studying and evaluating the existing collection, please note that the museum is not accepting donations of fashion designs at this time. After the assessment is complete we will consider donations and will announce this via our website.


Fashion is an art form. It presents unique statements of creativity that speak to the human passion for beauty, adornment, and identity. These universal attributes extend across time and throughout cultures. Fashion draws people together and has become a matter of general interest which, like art, reflects life and the world that surrounds us.

The Fashion Collection is one of the primary artistic focus areas of The Mint Museum. This special collection was founded in 1972 by the Mint Museum Auxiliary as a concerted volunteer effort to save community heirlooms. It is a rich resource within the Museum’s holdings that totals over 10,000 items and spans over three centuries of fashion history.
