Fabulous Flappers: Fashion from the Ellie Laubner Collection
Sun, 02/03/2013 - Sun, 04/21/2013
EXTENDED THROUGH APRIL 21!
This Scheller Gallery show will transport you to the vibrant era of prohibition, speakeasies, and the wild and carefree Charleston. Fabulous Flappers: Fashion from the Ellie Laubner Collection addresses our fascination with the 1920s. This retrospective exhibit includes exquisite evening gowns draped in beads, silky-soft lingerie, elegant embroidered shawls, and authentic bridal wear adorned with wax orange blossoms.
Marvel at Art Deco–style accessories such as dangling handbags, perky cloches, sequined shoes, and fantastic cigarette cases. Men are represented with sportswear, including knickers, letter sweaters, and swimwear. This exhibit is guaranteed to inform as well as entertain. A roaring good time!
