Saturday, March 26, 2011
“As we look at “Fashions from Literature”, guests will learn why only in the imagination of the printed word could there be such a thing as a bodice ripper! With the museum’s historic Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House as the backdrop for the show, excerpts from some of the most famous works ever written will come to life as historically accurate recreations of the costumes of the period are displayed before guests. After the show, visitors may also sample items commonly enjoyed at an afternoon tea, view a vintage clothing display inside the Hale House, shop in our Museum Store or Vendor Market, and much more. The annual fashion show is sponsored by Costumer’s Guild West, Folkwear and Councilman Ed Reyes, District 1.”
