A luncheon full of lounging took place Saturday, Feb. 23 as the Farmersville Historical Society’s annual style show and luncheon took place.

During the style show, historic women’s loungewear from Henson-Kickernick, a Greenville based family-owned company was presented.

The style show went through the eras of beautiful sleepwear spanning from 1924 into the 1970s.

“For nearly 40 years, discriminating women and the fine stores throughout the nation looked to Henson-Kickernick to set the fashion in loungewear,” Susan Lanning, the Executive Director of the Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum of Greenville, said.
