Sebastopol Vogue—High Fashion of the 19th & 20th Centuries

Clothing reflects the lives of the people who wore them and the age they lived in. Often it is the special garments that are kept as mementos of life’s major occasions. The fashions seen in this exhibit are from our archives and all were owned by Sebastopol women. The black beaded ball gown and cape could have been worn at Sebastopol’s Opera House and Dance Hall at the turn of the 19th Century. Two World War I era walking dresses and a summer Tea dress transition styles into the new century. Enjoy looking back through time at these threads of history.

This exhibit is on display through 2015.
