Spectrum of Fashion Exhibition

This exhibition is a visually stunning installation highlighting the extraordinary breadth of the Maryland Historical Society’s costume collection across four centuries and features nearly 100 examples of women’s and men’s clothing and accessories, as well as decorative arts.

Spectrum of Fashion tells an American social history rooted in Maryland. The clothing has connections to presidents and to the formerly enslaved, to the internationally famous, and to everyday Marylanders, all of whom have important stories to tell.

Designers represented include Maryland-born Claire McCardell, Hermès, Pierre Cardin, and Worth, to name a few. Rare survivals, such as livery worn by formerly enslaved individuals at Hampton Mansion in Towson, and a gown worn to George Washington’s inaugural ball, are also included. Additionally, clothing worn by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor will be on view.

On view October 6, 2019 through October 2020.

Sunday, December 15 at 12:00pm to 5:00pm

More dates through October 31, 2020
