Fashion and the Automobile is a touring exhibit that highlights the many changes wrought on popular culture by the evolution of the car. The exhibit is a virtual drive down memory lane, showcasing the relationship between fashion and automotive design by decade, and how both were influenced by function, environment, lifestyle, and world events. The fashion and accessories in the exhibit are authentic. The automobiles are depicted by automotive artists' work in original fine art, photographs & renderings. Pay attention to the "U-turns" each decade takes as “what's old becomes new again”.
Our Fashion Through The Decades presentation or fashion show is also available for your organization or fundraising event.
