Special Event: Fashion Plates: 150 Years of Style

This event has already passed

Before fashion shows and the rise of fashion photography, consumers kept up with the latest styles through printed publications that included fashion plates, or hand-colored illustrations depicting the latest modes. In her book Fashion Plates: 150 Years of Style, fashion historian April Calahan traces the evolution of style from the court of Marie-Antoinette to the Jazz Age through a carefully curated selection of two hundred rarely seen fashion plates.

A book signing will follow the talk.
