This exhibition features costume accessories from the late seventeenth through the early nineteenth century. Women and men enhanced their appearance with the addition of hats, purses, jewelry, shoes, and more. These objects kept pace with change in fashion and present a visually rich overview of the period.
There’s also a video presenting the exhibition.
I would love to go to Colonial Williamsburg some day and I hope I’ll get to go before this exhibition ends. It runs from January 29, 2011 through December 31, 2012.
