Founding Fashions

September 30, 2015 at 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Bigelow Courtyard, Old North Campus 193 Salem Sreet Boston, MA 02113 United States

Founding Fashions – Clothing from the Revolutionary War, 1775-1783 – is a runway event of historic proportions. Thirty reenactors will walk the runway in the clothing and uniforms of the men, women, and children of The Revolutionary War. You will see British regulars and Continental soldiers, ball gowns and riding habits, sailors and farmers, and everything in between! This is your chance to see 240 year-old fashions outside of museums on real-life models, and learn from experts in Revolutionary Period textiles, who will comment on the materials, design, construction and functionality of the garments on display, and point out details that are still used in fashion today.

Presented in Partnership with The Old North Foundation.
