Textile Gallery

Teenagers are on the edge of rapid change. Their rooms contain all of their possessions, and yet these are the last moments they will be living in their parent’s homes. The past is crammed into the same shelf as the future..."[1]

No matter the decade in which you grew up, you’ll find something familiar in one of the six bedrooms on display in A Day in the Life. Half the bedrooms (1950s, 70s, and 90s) belong to boys, and the movie posters, games, toys, and clothes in the closet reflect a young man’s developing interests. The 1960s, 80s, and 2000s are girls’ rooms. Experience the evolution of fashion before your eyes, from Jackie Kennedy to Madonna to Sienna Miller. Finally, try on some of those outlandish fashions at the interactive textile corner!
