3-20-17 – Fashion Show at WHS Museum
Fashion Show at the WHS Museum By Bob Mogray
On Monday, March 20, at 7:30 PM the Walworth Historical Society will sponsor a fashion show entitled “A Fashion Tour Through History.” This will be part of our regular March meeting at the museum on Academy Street. Through the years, we have accumulated many articles of clothing from people who have donated them to the museum. We thought that it would be nice to demonstrate some of these old and out-of-date items of clothing to our membership. Most of these clothes are stored in the museum upstairs and don’t often see the light of day. This will change for this meeting as we will show them in a fashion show. Formal dress, wedding attire, and military uniforms are only a few of the categories that we will have on hand. Four of these items are shown in the photo above and there will be many more as we share a few stories about them. This should be a fun meeting as we take a look at some styles of clothes from the past. We hope to see you there and we really appreciate your support for our programs. As always, refreshments will be served after the meeting. Hope to see you there.
