Claire McCardell Project Fund

Founded by The Frederick Art Club to support the creation of a public art representation of Claire McCardell, world renowned fashion designer, in the form of a bronze statue and a custom-designed interpretive panel.

This project honors Frederick, Maryland native and internationally acclaimed fashion designer Claire McCardell (1905-1958). Ms. McCardell pioneered the American style of sportswear that revolutionized how women dress and made design excellence accessible at ready-to-wear prices. Her innovative design continues to influence the fashion industry to this day, and her work is featured in collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fashion Institute of Technology, and the Smithsonian Institute.
