Hoopskirts to Flappers

Thursday, April 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm |

Join us for a special evening edition of our popular “Coffee Hour” series!

A woman born in 1850 who lived for 80 years would have seen fashion change dramatically in her lifetime. This program will walk you through our Costume and Textile collection to see how women’s clothing transitioned from the iron reign of the hoopskirt to the relative freedom of the flapper dress.
