Art Institute of Portland: 100 Years of Glamour

Jantzen is teaming up with the Art Institute of Portland in its hometown to celebrate 100 Years of Timeless Glamour. The Institute will be showcasing our archival suits as well as the 2010 Heritage Collection. In addition to nostalgic suits, imagery, celebrity advertisements, and accessories will be on display highlighting Jantzen’s evolution, as well as our own iconic 21-foot fiberglass Diving Girl.

This fabulous display of our history kicked off last Thursday night with a special opening reception. Guests got to check out the new exhibition for the first time and met Jantzen Archivist Carol Alhadeff and Faculty Curator Annin Barrett. The exhibit tells the story of Jantzen’s leadership both in swimwear and fashion marketing from 1910 to today, and will be on view through the end of April.
