Join us on Thursday, March 27th at 6:30pm as the Connecticut Historical Society presents From Bonnets to Bell Bottoms: A History of CT Fashion!
Sponsored by Valerie Manor in Torrington. Valerie Manor will also be providing vintage-style desserts before and after the event!
Clothing is something we use every day of our lives. Whether it has been passed down, owned for years, or just purchased yesterday, our clothing speaks volumes about who we are, what we do, and the society in which we live. Join Karen DePauw, Research & Collections Associate at CHS, and learn about 100 years of fashion history, from the 1860s to the 1960s. See how much has changed and what has stayed the same.
Registration begins March 1st. Call 860.489.6684 to register, or email Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org
