Open Winter 2023

Fashion Through the Pages

Tour Elaine von Bruns’ latest creation, Fashion Through the Pages, an exhibit featuring everything from the big wigs at the courts of Louis XIV and XV in Diderot’s Encyclopédie to Mary Todd Lincoln’s personal dressmaker to dazzling gowns in the color plates of period novels like Pride and Prejudice.


See fashions on paper and porcelain, children’s clothing trends in St. Nicholas Magazine, Art Deco cover girls with over-the-top hats, famous top-hatters, a caged corset, a satire of A. A. Milne’s When We Were Very Young, and much more.
