|Women's Fashions from the 1890s - 1960s
at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center
27130 102nd Ave NW Stanwood, WA
The exhibit features our extensive
collection of women's vintage clothing from local donors.
New fashions have been added this year to enhance the already
spectacular display. Waistlines and Hemlines vividly tells the story of
the women who lived in the Stanwood area during the first seventy years
of the twentieth century. The exhibit features an extensive collection of fashionable ladies’
clothing that serves to illuminate women’s history in the decades from
1900 through 1970.
These are the clothes that women saved because
they were treasured; the clothing had special meaning and memories
attached to it. Outfits range from wool swimsuits to satin and lace
The display of vintage fashions is organized in sections devoted to
telling the story of each decade through the clothes women wore then.
the clothing collection is truly impressive, docents have enhanced the
fashions by cleverly weaving into the exhibit historical anecdotes,
photographs from each decade, newspaper articles and ads of the day,
period objects, and an interpretive synopsis of each era covered.
