Trends in black and white clothing, and their associated meanings, differ between communities and throughout times. Co-curated by the Museum’s own Kim Owens and Sarah Samson, this exhibit explores three trendsetters and the lasting effects they had on black and white fashion.Join us to learn about three trendsetters in black and white fashion: the church, Queen Victoria, and Coco Chanel. The black and white fashions featured in the exhibit were worn by Rentonites from the 1870s all the way up to the 1960s. The exhibit will also delve into how black and white photos color our view of history. Black & White features swimsuits, dresses, hats, and accessories, bringing them out of storage and into the limelight.
