A new exhibition, Sportswear to Athleisure: The Creation of Comfortable Clothing, will feature the history of such fashion, using garments from the University of North Texas’ Texas Fashion Collection. The exhibition runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays from Sept. 8 (Friday) to Dec. 8 (Friday) at UNT ArtSpace Dallas.

The exhibition will feature contemporary pieces from designers such as acclaimed Italian designer Riccardo Tisci. An ensemble from his 2016 collaboration with NikeLab paired his high-fashion sensibilities with the activewear brand’s innovative performance fabrics, incorporating creativity from two radically different perspectives.
