The Remey Collection is a rare body of material, all worn by one woman during the three year period of her marriage to Charles Mason Remey (Cornell 1898). Following her tragic death in 1933 her husband gave her entire wardrobe to the Cornell Costume and Textile collection. This exceptional collection of pieces is an exquisite portrait of fashion in one of its most graceful periods.
