From Bonnets to Hats, 1830-1930
Bonnets used to be the de rigueur headwear for women, but by the 1920s no modern women would be caught dead wearing an old-fashioned bonnet instead of a stylish hat. Leslie Bellais, Curator of Costume & Textiles at the Wisconsin Historical Society, will explore why bonnets changed to hats, while also looking at stylistic changes. She will show bonnets and hats from the Society’s collection and reproductions for audience members to model. Register at 266-6581 for Tuesday, March 25 at 1 pm.
