Dressed Just Right Exhibition

Mildred Carpenter's dress was recently featured in the Dressed Just Right exhibit at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center Museum in Cody, Wyoming.

Her red dress, pictured on the left, was on display at the "contemporary platform" - representing some of the best current western fashion today. It's really cool to see a Native-inspired dress, made by a Native person, exhibited in the 'contemporary' section - because most of the time our awesome gear is relegated to the sections devoted to 'the past.'

Carpenter was also recently awarded the Best Fashion Collection at the Annual Cody High Style Fashion Show held every fall in Wyoming. Here's a few pics from her collection:
