Unlike today, people, especially of the upper class, would have changed several times daily. Both women and men’s clothing will be exhibited. The collection will be unveiled at 4 and 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4 in the Flagler College Rotunda, 74 King St., and will be on display in the Flagler Room beginning Sept. 12, as a part of the college’s historic tours.
