Til Trends Do Us Part: A Retrospective of Changing Fashion in Bridal Wear

The LSU Textile & Costume Museum’s exhibition ‘Til Trends Do Us Part: A Retrospective of Changing Fashion in Bridal Wear will feature approximately 200 years of extant pieces from the Museum’s wedding dress collection.  When viewed as a whole, the chronologically arranged garments will illustrate to the visitor the continuum of change in silhouette, design detail, and fabric that are distinctive to this extended period in western fashion history.  Information about social and political events influencing popular culture and fashion will supplement the learning experience.  News reports and etiquette advice will further contextualize changing trends. Images of celebrity brides and other memorable women add a nostalgic note to the exhibition enabling viewers to experience weddings throughout the decades.  This exhibition will be running April 16, 2023 – August 31, 2023.
