From the Elegant to the Everyday: 200 Years of Fashion in Northern New England
Opening reception, Friday March 14 at 5:30 pm
March 15 through May 3, 2014

Drawn from the collection of the Saco Museum, as well as other institutions in Maine and New Hampshire, this exhibition will focus on the clothing worn by the inhabitants of northern New England from the 18th through the 20th centuries. It will include not only examples of "best" dress, but also items of everyday clothing. Fashionable attire was not confined to just special occasion garments or the clothing of the elite; even ordinary clothes reflected the current style of their day. In addition to outerwear such as 18th-century cloaks, ladies' gowns of the 19th century, and 20th-century men's suits and military uniforms, there will be a wide variety of accessories on view as well.
