100 Years of History and Fashion

Exhibit: November 11, 2017-end of 2018
Reception: Saturday, November 11, 2017

Fashion cannot be removed from its historical context. Clothing is lived in, literally; it is made functional and meaningful through it production and use. How did historical events, new technologies, and shifting cultural values affect fashion? What materials were available, what was acceptable, and how were materials and information were disseminated?


  • Clothing donated or loaned by Stevens County residents
  • Dress up area for kids
  • Related programs throughout the year
  • Blog posts exploring other aspects of how history and fashion are connected
