Defying Labels: New Roles, New Clothes

New stunning pieces on display for this final staging of the critically-acclaimed exhibit!

Lyndhurst’s fashion exhibition Defying Labels: New Roles New Clothes returns this summer to tell the story of the revolutionary changes in women’s roles from 1880s to 1940 as reflected in their clothes. The exhibition utilizes the evolving wardrobes of three remarkable women, philanthropist Helen Gould, Anna Gould, Duchess of Talleyrand, and former actress Edith Kingdon Gould, the daughters and daughter-in-law of railroad baron Jay Gould.  With a focus on daywear, the exhibition highlights the development of the design attitudes and vocabulary that are direct precursors to modern dressing.

Included with tours of the mansion.
