Fashioning Illinois, 1820-1900 is a celebration of nineteenth century Illinois clothing that explores both the personal experience of wearing and caring for clothing, as well as the way fashion reflected women with 80 years of Illinois statehood.

Visitors to the exhibition will see stunning examples of historic costumes, textiles, and accessories from the Illinois State Museum’s Illinois Legacy Collection, as well as historic artifacts related to making, storing, washing, mending, and repurposing clothing. Interactive displays throughout the exhibition provide children and adults alike the opportunity to indulge their tactile senses, and a full lineup of related programming offers the opportunity for fun and learning.
