Get a peek into MOHAI’s textile collection and view treasures rarely seen. Women’s suits took on many forms in the 20th century, but their one unifying trait was that they were intended for activities outside the home. Whether meeting for lunch or marching in the streets, the suit was the essential garment of the modern woman. These intimate one-hour session, led by MOHAI’s Costume and Textile Specialist, allow viewers to discover garments in detail and hear the stories that make them special.
