Victorian Women Venue

Victorian Woman is a mini-fashion show. It’s an exciting and rapid time of change for women, especially between 1840 and 1890. The introduction of the sewing machine, House of Worth, and Industrial Revolution would forever change the status of women. Inventions in the development of department stores, magazines, electricity, movie halls and automobiles dictated that women were no longer limited.

Poster boards illustrate decade-by-decade changes. Fashions of 1870, 1880 and 1890 are discussed. Find out how fashions of the 1800's affect us today. The shirtwaist dress will illustrate how a lady could wear this dress by day. She could change hats, shoes and jewelry to go out in the evening. Enjoy discussions by Dianne Fallis about fashion and Oklahoma-era women.
