The Frederick Art Club sought to create a bronze monument to Claire McCardell’s important legacy in the fashion industry. Artist Sarah Hempel Irani, a graduate of Hood College, designed the larger-than-life statue of McCardell. In October 2021, the statue of this Frederick-native on Carroll Creek was unveiled to great fanfare - a lasting monument to an American woman who changed the way we look at clothing.
