The Way We Wore: Women's Fashion From Mid-20th Century

Jean McElvain, curator of the Goldstein Museum of Design, will review the history of women's fashion from the 1920s to the 1970s. This timespan featured major social changes including women's suffrage, the Great Depression, World War II, the struggle for Civil Rights and the Feminist movement. Each new development influenced the way women presented themselves, from flapper to the fashion plate arrayed in the classic designs of Christian Dior to the flower child wearing hippie chic.
