  • The Scheller Gallery

In 2009, the AAM became the proud recipient of the extraordinary Ellie Laubner Collection. This vast, all-encompassing collection consists of over 2,100 garments and fashion accessories spanning nearly two centuries. For 30 years, Ellie has carefully chosen items which reflect the styles, events, decorative arts, and even the mood and customs of the period in which they were worn. Her well-trained eye and discriminating taste have guided her selection of quality examples in excellence.

On February 2nd, the AAM will present "The Fabulous Flapper: Fashions from Ellie Laubner Collection." Come to the Scheller Gallery and be transported to the vibrant era of prohibition, speakeasies, and the wild and carefree Charleston. This retrospective exhibit includes exquisite evening gowns dripping with beads and sequins, softr silky lingerie, elegant embroidered shawls and elegant bridal wear adorned with typical wax orange blossoms. You will marvel at the intricate handbags, perky cloches, impeccable dance shoes, and colorful jewelry. Men will enjoy the sportswear which includes knickers, letter sweaters and swim wear. Art enthusiasts will appreciate the Art Deco items which permeate the exhibition. No 1920s exhibit would be complete with a warm, furry raccoon coat and this is no exception.

This exhibit is guaranteed to inform as well as entertain. So come one, come all and have a roaring good time.
