Today’s the last day to see the High Style exhibit at the SLCC South City campus. I checked it out last week to ogle the pretty vintage garments, with clothing from the 1890’s to present on display.
The evolution of style over time has always been interesting to me, so these kind of exhibits are fun to see. They also accompany the garments with descriptions of key events of the era they are from, and it is always fascinating to see what influence that has on the styles.
Maybe because the weather is turning wintery, but I was especially interested in the coats they had on display. I took pictures of some of the garments I was most interested in.
I really like long coats right now, and liked the contrast of the fur trim.
The dresses from the 20’s are very nice as well.
I liked the dresses from the 30’s, I would wear one like the gray dress, which is by Jean Patou.
The coat from the 1940’s featured a fur trim as well, and I thought the shape of the coat was interesting but the design could have held up without the fur.
The 1950’s styles feel very feminine.
The bright color of this suit makes it more fun than just a conservative suit, and the stitch detailing adds interest to the solid color.
This ultra mini jumper could only be from the 60’s.
This black and red pantsuit was very striking with the print.
Another striking print is on the Pucci dress. I liked the colors used in this print,I would definitely have something like that in my closet if I could.
