Stitches in Time: The Crossroads of History and Fashion

by  Liberty Hall Museum

Program image

Over the years the descendants of the Livingston and Kean families lovingly preserved and packed away the previous generation’s belongings in attics, basements, closets, drawers, and yes, even underneath floorboards.  Unboxed, preserved, and photographed, these fashion pieces the story of a way of life that has vanished from the Garden State. This fashionable presentation covers all the fashion dos & don’ts and how fashion has changed over three centuries.
