Evolution and Revolution in Women’s Fashion:1850-1970

From whalebone corsets to microminis, the evolution of women’s fashion since 1850 has been influenced by world events as well as by visionary designers including Coco Chanel, Paul Poiret, and Yves St. Laurent. This program features a brief history of how fashion has adapted to and been influenced by changing times and industrial innovation. From haute couture to home sewing, the clothes we wear have a history. Longtime Vogue editor and arbiter of fashion Diana Vreeland once said, “Fashion is part of the daily air, and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.”

The registration fee of $25.00 includes the lecture, reception, and one adult beverage.
