Dressed Rehearsal: Fashion as Performance

Formal and informal clothing, accessories, make up, hair care, and perfume or cologne, all contribute to our self-fashioning, and the impressions we give to others. Historic Deerfield explores this concept in a special, 8-week fall exhibition of early 19th-century clothing and accessories. Examples of men’s and women’s dress from the collection will be on view in the Stebbins House and Williams House in September and October of 2018.
