<P>FALL 201240 I have a personal collection of more than 200 antique wedding gowns. Whats interesting about restoring these pieces is the research. The oldest is a dress from Creole, La., dating to 1842. When I began to conserve this dress, some things didnt add up to the time period: stitches, fabrics. I researched its provenance. Wedding dresses are the easiest on which to ?nd provenance, because people keep records about them: court records, family bibles, diaries, invitations, oral history. Probably originally it was a ball gown from the 1830s and some pieces were added to it. Then it was used again later in the 19th century, so it had additional changes. The dress has the history of a family. Dr. Ann Dupont Senior Lecturer in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences The Creation Myth YOUR WORLD. OUR RESEARCH.
