Event Details & Description

In the city home to the once-bustling Garment District, discover the most in-vogue accoutrements of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries in Finishing Touches.

The Field House Museum’s newest exhibition explores the multiple meanings and purposes of fashion accessories in the era of the Fields, using pieces once belonging to the family as focal points.

From Julia Field’s dainty shoes to Eugene Field’s cane made of a shark’s spine, enjoy a wide selection of beautiful (and sometimes shocking) accessories from the Field House collection, as well as several pieces from other local institutions and private collectors. Come learn the language of the fan, the inspiration behind a wide-brimmed hat, and, according to Eugene, the flexible use of one’s housecoat.

Whether you’re from St. Louis or just passing through, catch a glimpse of the stylish accessories of a time-gone-by, discover the exciting history of Washington Avenue, and leave hopeful with the story of St. Louis’ upward journey to reclaim its fashionable past.
