Marjorie Merriweather Post left over 175 dresses and 300+ fashion accessories to Hillwood Museum upon her death in 1973. Her carefully curated wardrobe was couture and her jewelry selections were large and extravagant. Howard Vincent Kurtz, retired curator of costumes and textiles at the Hillwood Museum and Gardens, will discuss Post’s iconic wardrobe and sign copies of his book “Ingénue to Icon: 70 Years of Fashion from the Collection of Marjorie Merriweather Post” in this conversation.
