The answer is d. All of the items are featured in UNTís Texas Fashion Collection, which contains more than 15,000 artifacts. The Texas Fashion Collection is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and documentation of historically significant fashion. The collection is an educational resource for students, researchers and the general public.

Other notable items include an unusual doll collection, a 1900 Harbison dress of black silk similar to those worn during the Aesthetic Dress Movement of the late Victorian era, a 1954 Neiman Marcus two-piece suit of white wool with green and purple embroidery (worn by Stanley Marcus), and a gray three-piece silk damask suit by French designer Hubert de Givenchy (worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1964 movie Charade). 

At this time, the collection is housed in a climate-controlled room in Scoular Hall. To learn more about the collection or see some of the items, visit www.art.unt.edu/tfc.
