Delve into fashions worn for vacation & travel from the turn of the century through the 1960s!
Planes, Trains & Automobiles: Travel & Fashion is a new exhibit at DTLA’s FIDM Museum. Collaborating with Clever Vintage Clothing, the show is an exploration of American vacation wear from the turn of the century through the 1960s, and the way modes of transportation had an effect on travel wear. People dressed differently for steamship travel than they later did for air travel, while the ballgown necessary to strike an elegant pose during a mid-century ocean crossing would be ridiculous on an auto journey. Besides travel-oriented attire, you’ll also get to check out super-stylish luggage, an Art Deco tea service used that was used on the Queen Mary, and a selection of popular collectibles from the 1950s, souvenir scarves.
This event's opening is on June 12 from 6pm to 8pm.
