The exhibit is open 1:00pm – 4:00pm every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday through December 19th, and open on select Saturdays. Visit www.westonhistoricalsociety.org for exhibit dates and hours.

About the presenters: Michael Mombello is an accomplished Design and Merchandising executive for over 30 years, Michael now translates his brand know-how into the business of residential Real Estate in Fairfield County. After his tenure at Macy's, Ralph Lauren, J. Crew and Tommy Hilfiger, he is thrilled to be on the team at KMS Partners Compass; his appreciation for New England history and architecture allows him to see the possibilities inherent in antique homes, and lead him to frequent collaborations with the Weston Historical Society and Westport Museum for History and Culture.
Leslie Weiss uses her anthropology training to explore the diverse aspects of cultural changes and how zeitgeist merged with people, objects and events. In this presentation, she and Michael Mombello illustrate how clothing reflected the cultural patterns of an era. Leslie is a Weston Historical Society Trustee and co-curator of the Society’s exhibit, “ Weston Slept While the Nation Roared: Life in the Twenties.”
