Whether it is a yellow silk dress worn to Lincoln’s inaugural ball, or a psychedelic maxi dress from the 1960s, our costume collection tells the story of women’s fashion in Connecticut. We’ll share that story with everything from wedding dresses to corsets, but we’ll also explore how women worked to secure their health, freedom, and political participation, a story that shouldn’t be eclipsed by what they wore.
