With over 50 garments from every milestone of a child’s life including christening gowns, mourning wear, fancy dress and skeleton suits, this exhibition will turn the idea of “tradition” in terms of children’s clothing, upside down as it explores dresses worn by boys, the boots worn by girls and the colors worn by both. “Much of what we consider proper and traditional in regards to children’s clothing actually comes from advertisements.
