Art Deco: Fashion and Design in the Jazz Age·features The Betty Colker Collection of 1920s gowns. Collecting for over 50 years from vintage dealers around the world, Cincinnati native Betty Galpin Colker recently donated her collection to the Cincinnati Art Museum. Bold art deco designs are worked in beading, sequins, and embroidery on diaphanous slip dresses characteristic of the Roaring Twenties. The fashion featured in this exhibition is placed in context with exceptional examples of decorative arts from the Art Museum’s permanent collection, jewelry, posters, Cincinnati architecture, and original fashion plates from the Gazette du Bon Ton.
