NORTHERN DELAWARE

Ann Lowe: American Couturier at Winterthur (Sept. 9 - Jan. 7)
Experience the largest collection of Ann Lowe's work to date, featuring 40 iconic gowns, many that have never been on public display, and it will illuminate her evolution as a designer from the 1920s to the 1960s. Referred to once as "Society's Best-Kept Secret", Ann Lowe designed couture-quality gowns for America’s most prominent debutantes, heiresses, actresses, and society brides—including Jacqueline Kennedy, Olivia de Havilland, and Marjorie Merriweather Post. For decades she remained virtually unknown, and this exhibition hopes to bring her the recognition she deserved.
