KC's Historic Garment District 'Needle' Dedication

KC's Historic Garment District Museum & Needle Sculpture Dedication

On October 4th, 2002 Kansas City dedicated a sculpture and museum celebrating the city's historic Garment District. Along with the local dignitaries were a number of designers and workers from the district's heyday.

A fashion show of designs from the district followed the dedication of the sculpture after which the museum housed in DST's Poindexter building was opened to the public.
