The Litchfield Historical Society's upcoming exhibition House of Worth: Dressing Litchfield will highlight the Society's collection of original 1916 and 1918 house of Worth watercolor on paper fashion sketches.
Sent through postal mail to Litchfield seasonal resident Julia Chester Wells, these sketches allowed Worth's client to peruse and purchase garments from the fashion house without undertaking travel to Paris during a time of world war.
Join the Litchfield Historical Society in exploring the house of Worth, Litchfield's trendsetters, and the changing face of fashion during the 1910s. This temporary exhibition will make available to the public a selection of the original sketches, as well as period garments from the Society's collection.
The opening reception is August 28 at 6 p.m. The Litchfield Historical Society is located on 7 South St. in Litchfield, for more information
