Some garments have sentimental value because they are steeped in history. Maddy Bill, a young New Yorker, quickly understood this when she discovered her grandmother’s wedding outfits in a suitcase that had been locked since the 1950s…

And rightly so, when she returned from her wedding, Maddy Bill’s grandmother carefully washed her clothes and put them in the suitcase to pass them on to her relatives, as she explains to the media.
