Pretty wedding dresses! Yes! AND SO MUCH MORE!
This Exhibit is opportunity for you to see more than 150 dresses, other garments and objects that date back more than 200 years! Each mannequin, each dress form, and each case in this collection will be a blank canvas upon which we will display a piece of history, a marvel of design and skill, a work of art.
The Exhibit truly has something for everyone: for students of fashion history, or general history; for teachers; for museum professionals; for genealogists; for aspiring fashion designers; for costumers; for tailors; for needleworkers and fiber artists; for members of the clergy; for anyone in the wedding industry; for anyone in the literary arts or performing arts; for anyone who enjoys classic literature or historical fiction or costume dramas.
Throughout the exhibit, The Newberry Museum will host special events for audiences to highlight portions of the private collection. Watch for more information by following us on Facebook!
