(Union Franµaise des Arts du Costume). Association founded in 1948 by Franµois Boucher, a curator from the Carnavelet Museum, and textile and clothing manufacturers. UFAC’s collections belong to the Musée des Arts de la Mode and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, both in the Louvre. Through donations, Boucher and then Yvonne Delandres put together this important collection of clothes, accessories, and costume jewelry from the 1700s to the present day. UFAC’s aim is to add to this collection with new acquisitions, including documents such as drawings, advertising materials, catalogues, and photographs. They periodically organize exhibitions in museums all over the world.
