Costume Council

Celebrating 40 years

Founded by Mrs. Philip K. Wrigley in April 1974, the Costume Council supports the Chicago History Museum in the documentation and interpretation of the history and the art of costume. Through their efforts, the Museum has been able to maintain and grow the costume collection, one of the largest in the world, to help tell the story of Chicago and Illinois through the clothing of its diverse citizens.
