Our Commitment to Fashion Education
TMCS is a small non for profit 501(3) c historical society
and fashion community established in 2017 and located
in St. Louis, Missouri.
It is the practice of The Modern Classic Society to conserve rather than restore: we believe that worn wears and/or other related artifacts have more significant personal history than unused pristine wears. Signs of wear such as alterations, repairs, dirt/stains and modifications are evidence that these are real wears and such worn and/or used by real people.
