Fashion, utility, lifestyle...handbags are intrinsically connected to how women live in modern society. This exhibit explores how women’s lives have shaped the fashion of handbags through a collection of one hundred handbags ranging from the 1850s to the 1950s. Peer into the style choices of a flapper, a pioneer, and a Victorian socialite and discover the origins of one of women’s most beloved accessory.
