Things To Do

A Century of Style: 1860 – 1960

Date/Time

Aug 22, 2018 to Oct 6, 2018

Description

Inspired by the upcoming New York Fashion Week (September 5 - 12), the Wilton Historical Society is presenting a fashion exhibition "A Century of Style: 1860 - 1960", which will run through October 6.

Decade by decade, the exhibition traces evolving styles in women's special occasion garb. From an all-white cotton lace flounced dress suitable for a tea party in a garden to a Jackie Kennedy-esque black A-line with satin bow,  an Edwardian bridesmaid dress with train to a sophisticated wasp-waisted 1940s dress with matching custom-made suede shoes --  style trends are captured in these carefully saved clothes which had special significance to their owners. 

A display of handbags and women's shoes rounds out the show.

The exhibition was developed by the Wilton Historical Society, Pamela Hovland, and Megan Smith-Harris
