TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- If you love fashion and history, then "Defying Labels, New Roles, New Clothes," June 17 through Sept. 25 at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, should be on your radar.

The exhibit at the 19th-century Gothic revival-style home of railroad baron Jay Gould features the fashions of the Gould heiresses from the 1880s to 1940. The collection of gowns, dresses, sportswear and accessories includes more than 30 ensembles - from flouncy and feminine to sleek and modern.

Fashion names like Channel, Cartier, Worth, Van Cleef & Arpels, Louis Vuitton, among others are included with some pieces on loan from Cartier in Paris, as well as the Museum of the City of New York in Manhattan.

The exhibit is not just about the clothing, but about the interesting lives of the three Gould women, Anna Gould, Helen Gould and their sister in law, Edith Kingdon Gould.

Each woman – and their clothing – brings their individual perspective to this historical study of feminism at a time when discussions of new feminism vs. old are topical.

Admission to the exhibit is $10; but for $16 (for adults) and $12 (for children) visitors can tour the National Trust for Historic Preservation home. The exhibit is included in the price of the tour, and additional costumes will be on display on the house tour.

The mansion, at 635 S. Broadway is easily accessible from Metro-North and tickets can be purchased online at www.lyndhurst.org/ .
