Hosted by 20s/30s—All are welcome 

Pink for girls? Pants for boys? From color to cut, what we wear is infused with our era’s ideas about gender. Designers may emphasize “masculine” or “feminine” elements on a garment or create a “unisex” look, but the rules around what those words mean change over time. Join MOHAI Curator of Collections and Saint Mark's 20s/30s member Clara Berg for an intimate, in-person, one-hour session to view historic fashions in MOHAI’s collection which align with, deviate from, and expand our ideas about gendered clothing.

The Saint Mark's group will attend the session at 2 p.m.—some may choose to arrive early (1 p.m.) to visit the museum’s exhibits and/or join after (3:30 p.m.) for snacks and refreshments at a restaurant nearby the museum.

Tickets are required for Behind the Seams admission. A limited number of discounted tickets from Saint Mark’s are available ($20). Sign up here. Questions? Email Rose Hazard:
