Extreme Fashion: Early and Late 19th-Century Women's Dress
This fall, Historic Deerfield will exhibit eye-catching 19th-century women's fashion from its collection in two museum houses. Neoclassical dresses from the early 19th-century will be on view in the 1799 Asa Stebbins House, while the Colonial Revivial Frary House showcases 1890s fashions. The rich settings of both venues help to contextualize not only the objects on view, but also larger fashion stories in New England. Seen against period architecture and decorative arts, Extreme Fashion explores themes of gender, aesthetics, technology, and culture in 19th-century America.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
