The woman suffrage movement is alive and well on Long Island, at least when it comes to the clothes the women wore. I just spent a delightful afternoon with Nan Altman Guzzetta, owner of Nan’s Antique Costume and Prop Rental in Port Jefferson. Nan specializes in period clothing, from medieval to modern, and has some wonderful clothes from the Edwardian era that could have been proudly worn by any of our suffragists, complete with sash and hat banners.
Nan specializes in dressing people for weddings, garden parties, balls and all types of celebrations. Click on her website at http://antiquecostumes.com and travel back in sartorial time to the suffrage era and before.
