Austin Peay State University to show exhibit on American women’s fashion “What Women Wore”

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Fashion has always been one of the ways a society leaves its mark on history. From fabric and colors emphasizing social standing to design that highlighted society’s ideals of sexuality, a great deal of knowledge can be gained by studying the fashion of the time.

“Our goal (at Austin Peay State University) is to inspire our incoming freshman students and show them that history can be interesting and relevant,” APSU adjunct professor Deanna Carter said. “And after discovering a collection of period women’s clothing, we all decided that the pieces were a fantastic way to teach students about the social status and experiences of American women.”

First off, the president and first lady are dressed formally, while Marilyn has opted to wear a red polka dot bikini. Then there’s that big smile of hers, which seems to mock the uncomfortable expression on Jackie’s face.
