Fort Wayne Fashion : Downton Abbey Era

Set in England during the first quarter if the 20th century, the PBS drama Downton Abbey has garnered many loyal viewers. The show spans a time in history where fashion changed dramatically over a relatively short number of years. Women went from being fully covered and corseted to wearing looser dresses with shorter skirts and even bare arms. The collection of wearable textiles is a great strength of The Allen County - Fort Wayne Historical Society. Fort Wayne Fashion: Downton Abbey Era offers a glimpse of what was worn locally from the Edwardian Era through the Roaring Twenties.
