Where can you find the answer to Victoria's Secret? What is a reticule? What made a bustle, bustle. What did they wear underneath that.....hair.
The answers to these and many other quaint questions will be addressed in a presentation at the Museum Church on Sunday June 28th at 3:00 PM.
Glenna Jo Christen will bring her collection of antique clothing to illustrate her stories of their scarlet past. Glenna ties together Victorian history with its apparel like the ribbons on a Civil War bonnet.
Over a period of some years, her presentations have given insight into Victorian life to many audiences in the Detroit area. She will showcase some of the fabulous garments discovered in the dusty corners of the Society’s Mansion's third floor. And they are fabulous!
The Museum is fortunate to possess this collection of antique garments, and we are thrilled to have Glenna give us details about their past.
Perhaps we might have the honor of a visit from Dr. and Mrs. Loop. Answers to bustles and reticules are certain to be revealed, but a visit from the Loops? Let's just say, it's a Victorian secret.
If this interests you then don't miss the vintage clothing displayed inside the Loop House, this summer only! Check the story out at our blog.
