Opening reception: 12-3 p.m., Sept. 12
"Good Form: Dress and Decorum for the Woman of Fashion, 1873-1911" explores the rules that governed women’s dress and daily lives at the turn of the 20th century. Consider the dresses of one family’s wardrobe during this transition from the formalities of Victorian life to the emerging liberties of the Edwardian woman. Juxtaposing the garments with undressed forms will expose the changing identity of a woman of fashion.
