Flappers: Fashion & Freedom
August 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
In this key moment in the struggle for women’s equality and freedom of expression, this exhibition examines the history and social impact of fashion and its relationship to the women’s movement of the 1920s. Drawing on the Fairfield Museum’s rich costume collection, this exhibition raises questions about the relationships between the “New Woman” of the 1920s and the representations of freedom of movement, behavior, and thought that defined modern American womanhood.
On view in the Spaght Gallery | August 16 through February 2019.
Presented with support from Connecticut Humanities.
