As summer vacations give way to thoughts of heading back to school, football games and slightly cooler temperatures, so do the garments in the Charleston Museum’s Seasonal Fashions exhibit. The museum continues its year-long rotation in its Historic Textile Gallery with Seasonal Fashions: Autumn in Charleston. A range of garments, accessories and ephemera in this exhibit dating from the 1850s to the 1960s represents a seasonal shift to a more autumnal palette and theme.
Each Tuesday we post a piece from our textile collection. Some items have been on exhibit, some will eventually be shown in our new Historic Textiles Gallery and some may be just too fragile to display. We hope you enjoy our selection each week – do let us know if there’s something in particular you’d like to see on TEXTILE TUESDAY! #TextileTuesday
