Exhibited at 14 East St.

March 11 - November 29, 2024

This exhibit explores how the social and societal landscape of the 1920s was reflected in women's fashion. As the suffrage movement progressed and public perception of strict gender roles changed, the liberated woman celebrated her independence with short hemlines and sequins.
