GSA Fashion Shows

A number of the GSA fashion shows were filmed and some of these films are held by GSA Archives and Collections, namely the films for 1978, 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1986. These show models on the stage plus in some cases backstage footage and/or stills, and the audience arriving at the venue. For four of the films held by GSA Archives and Collections, the soundtracks have been incorporated at the editing stage and reflect the songs played at the show.
