Roll down your stockings and throw on some beads as we present Gatsby Garments: What They Wore to Roar. Travel back in time with us to the gin joints and speakeasies, boudoirs and beaches of the roaring twenties, for an intimate look at authentic fashion artefacts from this unique fashion period.
Norma Shephard, founder and director of the Mobile Millinery Museum, speaks on the Costume and Customs of the 1920s as guests enjoy an up-close-and-personal look at the flapper gowns, Charleston shoes, and other fashion artefacts that so defined the era. Shephard, who holds a Canadian Achiever’s award, has authored several books on fashion history and writes regularly for Canadian and American magazines.
This travelling exhibit debuted in 2012 and remains popular with retirement residences and fundraising event planners.
