Styling Orillia: A Look Back At Our Community’s Fashionable Past

Saturday, April 6, 2019 to Sunday, June 30, 2019
The Franklin Carmichael Gallery

Clothing might have made the man, but it is the woman who made it be about style.  Textiles and their accessories play a major role in establishing identity and contribute to an understanding of economy and social culture and customs.

This exhibition will showcase the diversity of textiles, from clothing and accessories to archival documents, along with needlework will provide a rich opportunity for exploration.  Due to their fragility and sensitivity to light, many of these objects have not been on display before.
