Volunteers Needed

SMOC has a clothing collection of garments that have a connection to Canadian, BC and Vancouver fashion. We are building this collection with the goal of making it available for study, and to create a museum that would be open to the public. We currently host events every year that make a small part of our collection viewable to the public. SMOC’s educational events also feature other collections or fashion-related topics.
