Extreme Fashion: Early and Late 19th-Century Women’s Dress at Historic Deerfield
September 3-October 31, 2019
Stebbins House, Frary House
Eye-catching 19th-century women’s fashion from the Historic Deerfield collection will be featured in two museum houses this fall. Neoclassical dresses from the early 19th-century will be on view in the 1799 Asa Stebbins House, while the Colonial Revivial Frary House showcases 1890s fashions. Seen against period architecture and decorative arts, Extreme Fashion explores themes of gender, aesthetics, technology, and culture in 19th-century America.
