Fashion from the Era of Baltimore’s Cone Sisters @ Rouse Company Foundation Gallery
Feb 1 – Mar 11 all-day
Fashion from the Era of Baltimore's Cone Sisters @ Rouse Company Foundation Gallery | Columbia | Maryland | United States

A new exhibit of historical women’s clothing from the era of Baltimore’s famed Cone sisters is on display. Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived unassuming lives in Baltimore at the turn of the century, but instead they traveled the world, amassing one of the world’s greatest modern art collections. The exhibit was developed in connection with the Rep Stage world premiere of “All She Must Possess,” a highly theatrical celebration of Etta Cone’s extraordinary life.

The exhibit provides an opportunity to view historical garments from the era in which the Cone sisters lived and to learn more about the fashion tastes shared by two of Baltimore’s most famous doyens of Modernity. The exhibit showcases clothing and accessories used for everyday wear, traveling, evenings out, and formal occasions. The exhibit also includes the historical clothing and photographs that inspired Julie Potter, costume designer for “All She Must Possess,” as she developed the costumes worn by the play’s actors. Accompanying the clothing are Potter’s original renderings of the costumes.

In the 1870s, when the Cone family moved to Baltimore, the city had a thriving Jewish community, which included prominent business leaders who founded Baltimore’s most successful and prominent department stores. The prestigious Hutzler’s opened its new, expanded building, known as “the palace,” in 1888. Hochschild, Kohn & Co. gave Hutzler’s a run for the money, opening its own large store in 1897. The two department stores offered the entire Mid-Atlantic region the most current fashions of the day.

Gallery hours are Monday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–9:30 p.m.

Playwright Susan McCully’s original production about the Cone sisters, “All She Must Possess,” will have its world premiere February 8–25 at Rep Stage. For tickets and additional information about the production, visit www.repstage.org or call the box office at 443-518-1500.
