Many of us spend time thinking about what we wear and what these choices say about our personality, interests, position, and beliefs. This has been true throughout history. Yet, over time the coded messages in material culture of the American past have become harder for us to read. Fashioning the New England Family uncovers stories as told by various examples of clothing, fabric, accoutrements, and associated manuscripts. The exhibition is on display at the Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS) through April 6, 2019, Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The exhibition is organized as part of MASS Fashion, a consortium of eight cultural institutions set up to explore and celebrate the many facets of the culture of fashion in Massachusetts.
