RSID Museum Announces Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion

. April 1, 2011 . 0 Comments

Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980 is one of the largest exhibitions of costume and textiles in the RISD Museum’s history. From Prohibition to disco, cocktails and fashion ritualized the passage of time, and helped men and women navigate the sweeping social changes that defined 20th-century American life. Cocktail culture—and the fashion that defined it—succeeded in unifying diverse groups of people while providing a means of vibrant personal expression. The exhibition opens Friday, April 15, and runs through Sunday, July 31.
