Nostalgia Mode: Fashion and Sentimentality in the 1970s

    • Commemorations of the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976 spurred a widespread interest in history, which translated into the romanticized and idealized interpretations of American history pervasive in popular culture of the period. This exhibition explores this wave of nostalgia as it appeared in fashionable dress to shine light on a lesser-known feature of fashion in the 1970s.
