When New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art needed another gown by the Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli for a 2012 show, it borrowed one from the Goldstein. The only special-purpose design museum in the Upper Midwest, the Goldstein has 31,000 objects that span world history from Roman glass to Danish-modern furniture. Its centerpiece is 21,000 pieces of clothing and accessories, including shoes and hats ranging from European couturier fashion to contemporary athletic wear.
