Iconic Culture: Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms
A Cultural Retrospective Exhibition, 1920-1979
Iconic Jewelry, December 9th, 1:30 pm
Join MCHS volunteer Nancy Cooper for a tour of the jewelry of Iconic Culture. From 1920-1979 jewelry changed, almost as markedly as the clothing fashions, but its goal remained the same… add the all-important ‘sparkle’ that completes a look.
Often more personal than clothing, jewelry speaks to time, mood, formality, and tradition. Ms. Cooper, with her passion for vintage jewelry, will lend insight into the nearly 3 dozen pieces on display as part of Iconic Culture.
Iconic Culture celebrates the connection of history and fashion and represents the largest textile exhibition in MCHS history. More than 65 mounted garments, plus shoes, hats, and purses from our extensive collection are on display.
