Art Deco: Fashion and Design in the Jazz Age

October 08, 2011 - January 01, 2012

 

Art Deco FashionArt Deco: Fashion and Design in the Jazz Age features The Betty Colker Collection of 1920s gowns. Collecting for over 50 years from vintage dealers around the world, Cincinnati native Betty Galpin Colker recently donated her collection to the Cincinnati Art Museum. Bold art deco designs are worked in beading, sequins, and embroidery on diaphanous slip dresses characteristic of the Roaring Twenties. The fashion featured in this exhibition is placed in context with exceptional examples of decorative arts from the museum’s permanent collection, jewelry, posters, Cincinnati architecture, and original fashion plates from the Gazette du Bon Ton.

 

Generous support for this exhibition is provided by:
