A (fashionable) step back in time

Those with a love of vintage fashion – and tea – will want to save the date of Nov. 3.

That’s when the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum (LMMM) in Norwalk will hold its “Great Gatsby Tea.”

The event, chaired by LMMM trustee Hunter Arton, will feature an illustrated talk, “Fashion for a New Era: Clothing the Modern Woman,” with Adrienne Saint-Pierre, The Barnum Museum in Bridgeport’s curator and a clothing historian.

In advancing the event, Arton has said, “The Tea Committee is thrilled to open its doors to another full house for a memorable afternoon at the Mansion. Guests will dine on American flavors, shop for gifts donated by local businesses and revel in the Gatsby era, while learning the nuances of 1920s fashion from renowned expert Adrienne Saint-Pierre.”

The event, which will also include a hat contest, will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at LMMM, at 295 West Ave. Tickets are $50 ($45 for members), with reservations requested by Oct. 27. All proceeds will benefit LMMM’s cultural and educational programs.
