18th century, 19th century, exhibitions


Some interesting exhibits with good web presences:

A Perfect Fit: The Garment Industry and American Jewry, 1860-1960 at Yeshiva University Museum, New York City. (On now, closing soon?). There’s an exhibit catalog available.

The Age of Nudity at the Kent State University Museum, Ohio. March 9, 2006 – Jan. 7, 2007. I am loving the transition gowns, and check out these late 1790s transitional stays!

Fashion on the Ohio Frontier: 1790-1840 again at Kent State. The exhibit is closed, but some great pictures online, like: oooooo, the embroidery!, the sleeves!. A catalog is available.

All those pics will go into the next Real Women’s Clothing update, whenever I get around to that.
