Exhibit: "History in the Stitches: Framingham Fashion through the Centuries" (thru Sept. 30)

04.03.17 at 1:00 PM - Edgell Memorial Library
3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA 01701
Website

Open Wednesdays-Saturdays. Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We've chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status, and personalities behind the every-present decision we all face: what should I wear?

Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.
