Our annual meeting featured a presentation by Jackie Field on the historic clothing and textile treasures of the BHHS Collection. Unique pieces of the collection were be shown as part of her talk as she explored historic fashion through the decades.

Ms. Field is a clothing and textile historian and curatorial consultant at the Maine Historical Society. Her talks about fashion and dress are informed by a lifetime of experience in the field, from frequent travel to the UK to explore British museum collections, and from her years of service on the national board of the Costume Society of America.
