The Changing Silhouette of Fashion: The Decade of the 1890s

WHEN:

February 21st 2019 to May 20th 2019
Paid Entry

WHERE:

Merchant's House Museum, 29 East Fourth Street, New York, 10003

WHAT:

The Tredwell Costume Collection at the the Merchant's House Museum comprises more than 400 articles of clothing, with the core collection made up of 39 dresses owned by the women of the House family. The Changing Silhouette of Fashion is a changing exhibition featuring Tredwell dresses from each decade of the 19th and early 20th centuries. These dresses show the changing silhouette of fashion over 100 years, and tell us about the women who wore them and the society in which they lived.

Next in the series is a two-piece cotton day dress from the early 1890s. The dress has leg-of-mutton sleeves, which was one of the defining characteristics of ladies fashion during this decade. It also features an even-length hem with no train, making it a more practical option for outdoor activities, such as walking, visiting friends, or shopping.

The dress display is included with general admission to the museum - follow the Get Tickets link to find out more.
