Worn through time, these hints of history tell stories of fashion and culture. From the elegant blue dress paired with a 1922 beer to the stylish coat adorned by a Fox Terrier in 1927, each garment carries its own tale. Lady golfers flaunt their fashionable outfits while swinging on the green, showcasing both athleticism and style.

Swinging fashions take center stage in early 19th-century society as women embrace freedom and movement with their attire.
