Today is the first Friday of the month and that means it’s time for the First Friday Art Trail. Today we will be replacing all the gowns displayed in the gallery with gowns from 1910 thru the 1920s. The feature dress this month is this 1912 wedding gown.
This ivory satin de Chine wedding gown was worn by Ruby Barron for her home wedding to C. Fred Litton on September 26, 1912. It was designed and made by Mrs. J.T. McNeill of 908 Elm Street in Dallas.
These dresses shown here will be on display in Gallery 1 from December thru February.
Don’t forget to vote for your favorite wedding dress here or at the museum for the dress that well be featured in the center May 2012.
