Fashion Outlaws
November 14, 2015 - April 24, 2016

Fashion Outlaws explores the social history of women's clothing from the Industrial Revolution to World War II, focusing on the relationship between mobility and women’s rights.  An outlaw is an individual who has broken the rules and is on the run from the law. Historically, strict dress codes limited women's social, spatial, and physical movement. Fashion outlaws are women who bend these rules, rebelling against tight-laced corsets and heavy, full skirts, to gain the ease of movement necessary to run, drive, bicycle, and more, all while earning greater social freedom. As key women rebelled against these limitations, fashion evolved into a symbol of women's liberation.
