  • Overview

    "Fashionable Society: Civil War to Post-War Textiles of Carmel" is an exhibit being presented by the Carmel Clay Historical Society in the 1800's Monon Depot Museum from April 10-June 26 2020. This exhibition will display historical textiles and fashion accessories, from the Carmel Clay Historical Society's permanent collections, dating from the mid 1880's to the 1950’s. Garments will range from simple prairie dresses, Victorian finery, early 20th century conventional dress, Prohibition era Art Deco and Art Nouveau couture, 1930s and 1940s style evolutions, and 1950s glamour. Displaying men’s', women’s', and children’s' period clothing, along with historic information and archival photographs, will allow for visitors to examine the ever-changing fashion trends followed in the city of Carmel and beyond. This exhibit is free and open to the public. Programs including workshops, film screenings, lectures, and a fashion show will all coincide with the two-and-a-half-month exhibition. Join us to explore where our city's distinctive style began, as Carmel continues to express itself as a "fashionable society".
