Come see mannequins dressed in fabulous gowns dating from the 1910’s, learn how those vintage looks inspire today’s fashions, and let our runway models show you how to add vintage touches to your own wardrobe. Connecticut Historical Society will curate a small pop-up exhibit to accompany Haute History that will feature costumes from the 1910’s through 1970’s that will serve as inspiration for the looks presented on the catwalk. We will project additional images of costumes from our collection on the wall behind the stage, and offer commentary that explains the design and history of the collection pieces and connects them to today’s runway looks provided by Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets. Visitors will be able to tour the pop-up exhibit before and after the fashion show, enjoy light refreshments, and tour the museum galleries to make a perfect Mother’s Day weekend outing.
