Fashion Accessories from Head to Toe

There’s an interesting exhibition coming up at The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum in Colonial Williamsburg, Fashion Accessories from Head to Toe. Here’s what the museum website has to say:

This exhibition features costume accessories from the late seventeenth through the early nineteenth century. Women and men enhanced their appearance with the addition of hats, purses, jewelry, shoes, and more. These objects kept pace with change in fashion and present a visually rich overview of the period.

There’s also a video presenting the exhibition.

I would love to go to Colonial Williamsburg some day and I hope I’ll get to go before this exhibition ends. It runs from January 29, 2011 through December 31, 2012.
