Our annual Vintage Fashion Show and Tea explores men’s and women’s fashions over several decades, from as early as the 14th century to the tailored looks of the 1940s and 1950s. Our show is an entertaining and educational experience for the public, offering them an opportunity to learn about how environment, technology, and social changes affected fashion. This year the focus for the popular show is “How History Affects Fashion and How Fashion Influences History.”

In our history, fashion effected people’s outlook on life, and influenced their view of their social status, and thus their potential. For instance in the 15th century in Germany, sumptuary laws forbade the lower and middle class from wearing excessively gaudy raiment. Around Venice, people were restricted from weaving anything but black velvet, so as to make a distinction between town and country. In general, fashion most heavily influences the economy, which in turn affects other aspects of society.

With the museum’s historic Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House as the backdrop, visitors may also sample items commonly enjoyed at an afternoon tea, with delicious teas provided by Chado Tea Room, and view a vintage fashion display in the Perry Mansion.  The vintage clothing exhibit, “Fashion is Historical,” will include beautiful pieces from the era of such popular shows as “Downton Abbey.”

Sponsors for the 2013 Vintage Fashion Show and Tea are: Councilman Ed Reyes, Chado Tea Room (Pasadena), Vroman’s, Gavina Gourmet Coffee, Folkwear and Ozzie Dots.
