1800s to 1960s Fashion Treasures
on display NOW at the
Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History

 

Boynton Beach, FL - - - Fashions from the late 1800s to 1960s are represented in the most current exhibit at the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History.  The exhibit is entitled: Fashion Treasures from the Museum’s Permanent Artifact & Fashion Collection.
 
This fashion exhibit first premiered in year 2005 at the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History’s former location in the Pineapple Grove Arts District located in Downtown Delray Beach, Florida.  From years 2003-2005 the Museum was located in a rent-free donated 8,000 square feet facility in the Pineapple Groves Plaza owned by A.M. Davis Mercantile.  The owner sold that plaza in Summer 2005 and the new owner demolished it for redevelopment therefore the Museum had to move and had been homeless until Fall 2009.
 
After four years of homelessness, the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History re-opened in a donated 8,000 square feet facility located inside the Boynton Beach Mall at 801 N. Congress Avenue, #483, in Boynton Beach, Florida.  Thanks to various donations including in-kind donations of labor and supplies, the facility was renovated to include three gallery spaces to host exhibitions as well as an education room for school field trips and children programming.  Some of the major sponsors of the renovations, include, but not limited to, City of Boynton Beach Vice Mayor Woodrow Hay; the Patricia Ann Ravo Fund, the Boris & Edith Rueger Fund, Mr. & Mrs. n’Gurumo d’Ntenga, Mrs. Herme de Wyman Miro of The International Society of Palm Beach (donation was made in honor of Iris Apfel), Mrs. Beverly Oren, Mr. & Mrs. Dave Randolph, Elizabeth Schmier, Delores Silver,
Dr. Lawrence Davenport, Huntington Lakes Tennis Club,
Boynton Beach Mall-Simon Malls, Home Depot-Boynton Beach, Sears-Boynton Beach and US 1 A/C Self Storage of Boynton Beach.
 
The 2010 Fashion Treasures exhibit has been modified and enhanced. The exhibit was developed based on items from the Museum’s permanent artifact, archival and fashion collections.  Fashion Treasures was curated by Lori J. Durante who serves at the Executive Director/Chief Curator of the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History.
 
Fashion Treasures is a chronological exhibit displayed in a decade by decade sequence from the late 1800s to 1960s.  Through this exhibit, visitors will have an opportunity to learn how lifestyles, status or wealth, the economy and war influenced extreme changes in clothes design from one decade to the next.  The exhibit is also recommended for students who are doing research for school projects about history, social studies, anthropology, fashion and/or textiles.
 
Although the Fashion Treasures exhibit is permanent and on-going, the items, clothes, accessories and artifacts are presented in the exhibit on a rotating schedule and will be changed or modified seasonally.
 
During the Spring and Summer 2010 seasons, nearly 40 items selected from the museum’s permanent archival, artifact and fashion  collection are featured in the exhibit, such as a black 1890 silk bustle skirt and black whale-boned bodice (top) which are both fine examples of the S-bend silhouette that was popular during this period.  These items were donated to the Museum by Marion Cone of Lake Worth, Florida.  Another item on display is a circa 1920s men’s Stetson hat that was donated to the Museum from Chris Fraser of Delray Beach, Florida.  The Stetson hat once belonged to her late grandfather August Henning Youngren who was born in 1869 and was from Galesburg, Illinois.  Other fashions showcased represent the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.  The fashions of the 1920s represent women’s styles that were free of the corsets and bustles and offered straight, knee length silhouettes with frilly designs.  The 1930s clothes had the bland simplicity that was influenced by the great financial depression of that decade. A 1938 fancy dress worn, by Kathleen Van Hoose Snow of Shreveport, Louisiana, to a wedding is among the rare and more stylish dresses from the Great Depression period that is displayed. The 1940s fashions reveal shorter hemlines and fewer decorations due to the government imposed fabric rationing because of World War II. 
 
The 1950s introduced a return to high-glamour – a celebratory period because the war had ended.  Nancy Fisher Alley of Boca Raton, Florida donated to the Museum her mother’s 1949 Maytag Dutch Gas Stove which is displayed in this exhibit.  There is also a black Chanel handbag from Geraldine Roberts-Lebowitz of Boca Raton featured in the exhibit component about Chanel’s famous 2.55 (February 1955) bag that was inspired by military bags used by soldiers during during WWII.
 
Also featured in the exhibit representing the 1950s is a Hattie Carnegie Fruit & Flower Pixie Hat that was donated to the Museum from Janet Friedman of Boca Raton, Florida
 
The 1960s era fashions were influenced by the counterculture movement of that decade. A mid-1960s orange A-line evening dress by Chester Weinberg is featured. The dress is silk with metallic thread and plastic rhinestones. Chester Weinberg’s fashion collection premiered in 1966 and catapulted his design career. His signature style was the use of massive prints in daring bright colors.  The Chester Weinberg dress was a gift to the Museum from Ruth McGoldrick of Boca Raton, Florida
 
The exhibit also includes a display of hats representing various cultures and religions from Tibet to Catholicism that were donated to the Museum by Gene Hacker of Delray Beach, Florida. 
 
Countess de Hoernle of Boca Raton, Florida donated a number of fashion accessories to the Museum in 2002 and her 1950s green silk Chinese purse is displayed in the exhibit also.
 
And, Military and ROTC hats of Dave Randolph, former Vice Mayor of Delray Beach, are shown. As well as, his wife, Mary Randoph's,1960s graduation Nurse's cap is displayed.
 
To date, the Fashion Treasures exhibit is sponsored by the Patricia Ann Ravo Fund, the Boris & Edith Rueger Fund, Boynton Beach Mall-Simon Malls,
US 1 A/C Self Storage of Boynton Beach.  The Mannequins were donated by
Saks Fifth Avenue of Palm Beach, Florida.
 
Other Exhibitions on Display: 
Also on exhibit at the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History is Barbie:History, Fashions & More which features hundreds of dolls, clothes and accessories representing various careers and cultures.  The exhibition is organized in a decade by decade sequence chronicling the evolution of the Barbie doll and its impact on popular culture and the toy industry.  Other upcoming exhibitions at the Museum include LILLY which is exhibition profiling the Lilly Pulitzer fashions opening on August 3, 2010 thru May 31, 2011; and SCAASI featuring couture gowns by Palm Beach resident Arnold Scaasi that have been donated to the Museum premieres on September 25, 2010 thru June 19, 2011.

About Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History
 
The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 history museum that was established in 1999. MLFH is the only fashion history museum of its kind in the State of Florida. The inspiration for the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History of Delray Beach was the phenomenally successful popular culture & retrospective exhibit "40 Years of the Barbie® Doll" in celebration of Women's History Month which was on display from March 1999 thru September 2000 in Delray Beach, Florida.  Mattel, Inc, loaned from their archives to Durante nearly 80 Barbie® dolls for display in the exhibit. More than 20,000 visitors from around the world attended this exhibit which made it the #1 attended exhibit in the history of Delray Beach and one of the most memorable Museum exhibits in all of Palm Beach County.   The Barbie® Doll exhibit was conceived and curated by Lori J. Durante who is the Executive Director/Chief Curator of the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History.  
 
The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH) has been raising monies to acquire property for a proposed museum permanent facility for the purpose of presenting permanent and traveling exhibits.  The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History has been the only museum in Palm Beach County approved to host traveling exhibits from the Smithsonian Institution.   When the Museum was located in the donated space in a shopping center in downtown Delray Beach a number of exhibits from the Smithsonian were hosted.  That shopping center has been sold and demolished for redevelopment.  A permanent building is very much needed by the Museum to once again bring exhibitions to this area from the Smithsonian as well as artifacts from around the world.  For the permanent building for the Museum, there are many naming opportunities available as well as other donation and sponsorship categories.
 
 
In 2009, MLFH opened in a temporary donated 8,000 square feet facility at the Boynton Beach Mall in Boynton Beach, FL.  MLFH will be at this location for at least three years while fundraising efforts still continue for the permanent building.
