Well-Dressed in Victorian Albany

Starting: October 07, 2017 (Recurring daily)

The Victorian era has received renewed public interest with the recent first season of the PBS television series Victoria, which chronicles the life of the British monarch. Garments produced during this period reflect the wide-ranging impact of the Industrial Revolution on the aesthetics, technology, and social history of the time.

The featured costumes will include examples of garments worn in daily life and for life's special events; practical everyday styles will be juxtaposed with garments of incredible beauty and design. The decade by decade changes in fashion will be illustrated by the array of silhouettes created with bustles and hoops and elaborate sleeves. The luxury associated with the Victorian era will be reflected in the jewel rich tones and sumptuous textures found in the fabrics: plaid taffetas, plush velvets, and shimmering silk satins.
