AboutFashion designer Mildred Orrick (1906-1994) graduated from the New York School of Fine and Applied Art (later, Parsons The New School for Design) in 1928 and went on to a career as a fashion and costume designer and illustrator, and designed part of the Futurama exhibition at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Orrick was a visiting critic at Parsons from 1947 to 1962. The collection consists of Orrick's fashion and theater costume sketches, 1920s-1950s. Additional Orrick sketches may be found in the Kellen Design Archives' Claire McCardell sketch collection.
