Join us at the historic Kentlands Mansion for a program to remember! Montgomery History and the Art Deco Society of Washington are co-hosting a special vintage fashion show featuring looks from the 1920s. Start this elegant afternoon with a light reception and jazz from the 1920s and 1930s performed by pianist Alex Hassan. Light fare and non-alcoholic beverages are included with your ticket, and a cash bar featuring local wines will be provided by Olney Winery.
Then enjoy a rare opportunity to see vintage clothes in action! The Kentlands Mansion will be transformed into a runway for private collectors to model their clothing and accessories from the Roaring Twenties. See flapper fringe bounce, asymmetrical hemlines sway, and silk chiffon float down the aisle as these pieces come to life.
Following the show, all guests are invited to the Beall-Dawson Museum, a short drive away, for a special curatorial tour of Montgomery History’s exhibit Cocktails, Lipstick & Jazz: Life in the Age of Fitzgerald, included in your ticket price.
Dressing in your own vintage attire is most welcome, but not required! Space is limited for this special program, so buy your ticket now and enjoy early bird pricing, with tickets starting at $25 for members. No tickets will be sold at the door. We hope to see you there!
A special thank you to Art Deco Society members Lori Crandall for organizing the fashion show and Donna Limerick for acting as the emcee for the program.
