Exhibit: From the Elegant to the Everyday: 200 Years of Fashion in Northern New England


Please join us for the opening of  
From the Elegant to the Everyday: 200 Years of Fashion in Northern New England
 14 March 2014, 5:30

Curated by Saco Museum Director, Tara Vose Raiselis, the garments and accessories are drawn from the collection of the Saco Museum
as well as other institutions in Maine and New Hampshire. 

An exhibition of over 50 costumes will focus on the clothing worn by the inhabitants of northern New England from the 18th through the 20th centuries. It will include not only examples of "best" dress, but also items of everyday clothing. Fashionable attire was not confined to just special occasion garments or the clothing of the elite; even ordinary clothes reflected the current style of their day. In addition to outerwear such as 18th-century cloaks, ladies' gowns of the 19th century, and 20th-century men's suits and military uniforms, there were be a wide variety of accessories on view as well.
