Diamonds in the Daytime: The Changing Fashions of Margaret Brown’s World

Fashion
– a way of dressing, a personal statement, a mode of creation, a moment in time. While fashion evokes images of beauty and glamour, in reality the history of fashion has been shaped by political and social upheavals, health issues, technology, environment, and economic status. The world that Margaret Tobin Brown was born into saw significant changes in fashion in America. The way clothing was manufactured, how women shopped, and changing gender roles all reflected new modes of living for women.

Diamonds in the Daytime explores shifting fashion modes as a reflection of social change as America moved through the Gilded Age and into the Great Depression. Margaret Brown was both a witness to and agent of the great changes during her life and became a fashion icon in her own right.


Great News!



The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded $19,000 from their Museums for America grant to the Molly Brown House Museum. The museum will use the grant funds to further the longevity of a textile collection important to the Museum’s historical themes and safe guard it for future generations.
