Offering a deeper look at the attire that has come to be associated with 1960s and ’70s hippie fashions, this exhibition will showcase handmade garments that resulted from the era’s counterculture ideals. For many, relying on their own crafts symbolized their rejection of consumerism. “Counter-Couture” will underscore the political nature of these looks, connecting them back to their original significance.
