Explore the Theme: Secret Garden

This year's theme Secret Garden is really about finding inspiration in garden flowers, vines, trees, and bugs. Teen designers had a wonderful session finding illustrations and photographs in Digital Collections and figuring out how to turn a petal shape into a sleeve or a beetle wing into a skirt. See their delightful creations on display starting June 27. What lush costume will you create?
