Embellishments: Constructing Victorian Detail

Guest Curator:  Astrida Schaeffer

September 14-December 14, 2012,

Opening reception Friday, Sept. 14, 5-7:00 PM.  All welcome.

 

A sumptuous selection of twenty-five Victorian era garments and accessories from the UNH Irma Bowen Textile Collection are on display at the University of New Hampshire Museum in Dimond Library. The exhibition and its accompanying book (published by the Branch Creative) explore the aesthetics behind 19th c. clothing design and provide a detailed examination of how their decorative elements were constructed. The result of this project will inspire the contemporary needle worker, designer, garment historian, and those who just love fashion.
