What We Wore
Daily Activities at What We Wore
Explore a changing exhibit of garments and their stories in What We Wore, a collections platform showcasing the rich collection of clothing and accessories at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.
Featured Collection: Aprons
Mid-December 2023 to mid-April 2024
Aprons protect, connect, identify, embellish and advocate. They may be worn in the kitchen, on the job or at the workshop. Our latest What We Wore collection presents a variety of aprons and uncovers the stories they tell.
Featured pieces include aprons worn by a 1950s hostess and a building material company employee, and an apron given to General Electric customers who purchased appliances in the 1970s.
Stop by the What We Wore case, near Plum Market Kitchen, to see the aprons and explore their stories.
