What to wear? Do clothes make (or break) the person? This exhibit features men’s, women’s and children’s garments from the Touchstones Nelson permanent collection.

The design, functionality, and manufacturing of clothing will be examined in relation to gender roles, labor requirements, social classes, and cultural values from the turn of the twentieth century until the late 1960s.
 

Focusing on the differences between clothing worn during the day and the evening, this exhibit will explore how changes in past fashions have affected the development of designs and consumption of clothes today.
 

Guest curated by Katherine van der Veen. Exhibition opens Sept.2, and runs from Sept. 3 to Nov. 20.
