Mod Mystique: 1960s Fashion
September 8, 2018 – March 24, 2019
There were the trends: miniskirts and pillbox hats, a la Jackie Kennedy. There were the designers: Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta. There were the happenings: Woodstock and London’s mod look. It all blended to launch one of the most vogue decades of all time. Over 20 pieces of fashion from the 1960s—all from The History Museum’s historic clothing collection—will be on view in The History Museum’s Oliver Mansion. You will pull out your vintage vinyl of “Sgt. Pepper” and do a Google search for white go-go boots.
