On April 6, Hagley Museum and Library opens "Fashion Meets Science: Introducing Nylon." Seventy-five years ago on October 27, 1938, a brand new material named nylon was announced to the public. Created in DuPont’s labs, nylon replaced silk in the ladies hosiery industry. Nylon was so popular that its early sales created near riots because demand was so high. Hagley’s exhibition will discuss the early development of nylon and its impact on the fashion industry. Exhibition included with admission. The exhibition will be open through March 31, 2014.
