The chronological exhibit will include antique fabric samples, clothes in denim and denim's predecessor fabrics, and examples of jeans as a fashion item from the second half of this century. The oldest item displayed will be an early 18th-century French men's suit, the fabric of which is woven with a white thread warp and blue thread weft. Another prize is a pair of brown cloth Levi Strauss pants dating from between 1876 and 1896. From more recent years, jeans will be displayed from designers or brands like MarithÄ & Francois Girbaud, Guess, Chanel Boutique and Vivienne Westwood. Mini-previews of the exhibit will be staged at the SEHM men's wear show and the Pret-ê-Porter Paris women's wear show Sept. 2 to 5. Denim producer Uco Sportswear from Ghent, Belgium, is a major sponsor of the exhibit. Denim seems to be the hot medium.

It will feature denim paintings by Brad Watkins, denim sculpture by Heath Satow and a line of denim clothing created by Victor Chu, a product design student at North Carolina State University. The show is scheduled to open Nov. 26.
