More than 40 wedding gowns that span from 1840 to the present times have become the subject of an ongoing exhibit at the Patterson-Appleton Center for the Visual Arts, located in Denton, Texas.
 
Dubbed as ‘American Brides: Inspiration and Ingenuity’, the event aims to explore not only the changing sartorial trends but also the re-emerging styles in American bridal fashion.
 
Slated to run through October 24, 2014, the displayed pieces have been sourced from the University of North Texas’ Texas Fashion Collection, which houses over 20,000 historic clothing items, and private collectors like Steven Porterfield, the owner of Midland-based Cat’s Meow vintage store.
 
Some of the most outstanding pieces from the exhibit are a 1993 S Victor Costa-designed dress, featuring embroidered thistles, an 18th century style dust ruffle, buttoned sleeves and a long train, a 1982 gown with billowing sleeves inspired from Princess Diana’s dress and a Gibson Girl-inspired gown from 1894 with voluminous sleeves.
 
The event also showcases a 1900’s dress with a lace choker collar, a beaded flapper dress from the 1920s, a 1980’s satin creation with organdy ruffles, a 1952 floral motif embroidered white cotton organdy gown and an 1878’s deep plum silk satin dress with a boned bodice.
 
The display’s more contemporary exhibits include a strapless Michael Faircloth gown with a bodice featuring leather as well as a dress attached with a skirt of ostrich feathers, designed by Nardos Iman.
