Litchfield Historical Society presents House of Worth: Dressing Litchfield

The Litchfield Historical Society’s upcoming exhibition House of Worth: Dressing Litchfield will highlight the Society’s collection of original 1916 and 1918 house of Worth watercolor on paper fashion sketches.

Sent through postal mail to Litchfield seasonal resident Julia Chester Wells, these sketches allowed Worth’s client to peruse and purchase garments from the fashion house without undertaking travel to Paris during a time of world war.
