Worn on This Day: The Clothes That Made History
This stunning visual guide is a journey of discovery through fashion’s fascinating history, in the future at a time.
Beginning on January 1st and ending on December 31st, Worn On This Day looks at garments worn on monumental occasions across centuries, offering capsule fashion histories of the whole thing from space suits to wedding gowns, Olympics uniforms, and armor. It creates thought-provoking juxtapositions, like Wallis Simpson’s June wedding and Queen Elizabeth’s June coronation, or the battered shoes Marie-Antoinette and a World Trade Center survivor wore to flee certain death, only a few calendar days apart.
In each and every case there’s a newsworthy narrative in the back of the garment, whether famous and glamorous or anonymous and humble. Prominent figures like Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, and the Duchess of Cambridge are represented alongside atypical people caught up in odd events. Beautifully illustrated during, Worn On This Day presents a revelatory mash-up of styles, stories, and personalities.
