Charmed Life

1814 Fashion Show

The Hampstead Hill Festival brings historic fashions to life.

Celebrate Charm City at this weekend’s Hampstead Hill Festival, and check out an anything-but-typical fashion show.

Honoring the 200-year-anniversary of the city’s victorious Battle of Baltimore, the festival will include musical performances, historical reenactments, air shows, parades, and more—all reminiscent of the era.

Event hosts, the Creative Alliance and the Friends of Patterson Park, have teamed up with Christopher Schafer and the Baltimore Fashion Alliance to put on the 1814 Fashion Show. The runway will feature an array of civilian and military attire from the early 1800’s, and mainly, from the War of 1812. The costumes will consist of pieces that have been acquired over time, as well as others that have been made specifically for the show.

The free event will take place this Sunday, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Patterson Park Pagoda. The fashion show will begin at 12 p.m. and last approximately 30 minutes, on the main, Bull Circle Stage.
