DIHS Event: Behind the Seams

April 01, 2024

Join the Daniel Island Historical Society as the Charleston Museum’s Curator of Historic Textiles Virginia Theerman shares highlights from their nearly 10,000-piece costume and textile collection. Through individual objects worn by both the notable and the unknown in our city’s history, she will speak about the evolution of garments and styles from the Colonial era to the present.

Theerman says she’s looking forward to her DIHS session. “Fashion history is a unique intersection between art, commerce, labor rights, women’s history, and social history. Examining these garments in more detail can reveal much about the lives of the people who wore them, and gives us a chance to intimately connect with their place in the historical narrative.”

Plus…a Bonus! They’ll be celebrating Robert Daniell’s birthday…complete with cake! Please join in!
