September 6 - December 8, 2017
Drawing from the Fashion and Apparel Studies Department's Historic Costume and Textiles Collection, Special Collections in Morris Library, and private lenders, this exhibition provides an in-depth look at World War I through the lens of what people wore. During the war years, fashions changed by necessity and by invention. Everyday fashions echoing military styles gained popularity, and some garments, footwear, and accessories created to answer wartime needs remain in vogue today. The exhibition highlights the stories behind the garments, focusing on the personal accounts of the people who wore them.
