Great Gatsby Tea

November 3, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$45 – $50

The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s Great Gatsby Tea will be a luxurious whirlwind of delicious refreshments that will immerse our guests in the grand and extravagant era of Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s dashing and daring anti-hero.

The event, chaired by LMMM Trustee Hunter Arton, will feature a talk entitled, “Fashion for a New Era: Clothing the Modern Woman,” by Barnum Museum Curator and Clothing Historian Adrienne Saint-Pierre.

Come experience this memorable teatime, with a menu worthy of the Great Gatsby, catered by Best in Gourmet.

Women’s clothing was transformed in the 1910s and 20s by the need—and desire—for more practical garments than those worn in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. More women were entering the workforce, and the impacts of World War I were pervasive, even affecting the fashion and textile industries. Perhaps most intriguing to us today is that this was the era when women’s voices were finally heard, and the fight for suffrage prevailed.

Join us for a fascinating look at what women wore and why, from everyday togs to the most glamorous gowns. Ms. Saint-Pierre will present an illustrated talk about fashion and how it defined “the modern woman.”
