Fashion as art is preserved within the Sage Collection at Indiana University. With more than 19,000 objects of women's, men's, and children's fashion, accessories, publications and fashion plates, the Sage Collection offers countless research, volunteer and instructional opportunities for students, faculty and community members. Just a sample of the Sage holdings includes 19th century fashion periodicals, contemporary couture ensembles, hats, shoes, and jewelry.

The Sage Collection does not have its own exhibit space, however it does collaborate with other area museums to produce fashion-related exhibits.
