Fashionably Connecticut: 100 Years of Connecticut Fashion History, 1860-1960
Maybe you remember Grandma’s old blue dress and serious shoes or Dad’s best suit and hat, but did you ever wonder why they wore what they wore? This program explores how clothing communicates who we are, what we do, and the society in which we live. You’ll look at everything from military inspiration during the Civil War to the influence of political liberalism in the 1960s. Recall the clothing of your ancestors, your parents, and your own fashion choices as we take this little trip through over 100 years of fashion. Date: March 30, 2019
