In this 45 minute presentation, learn a survey of fashion history from Eve to Scarlett O’Hara and the shapes of modern clothing from 1890 to 1990 highlighting social, political, and economic influences which explain the fashion trends of the last one hundred years. The Fig Leaf program focuses on how garments from the past figured in the age-old search for ways to beautify the human form – male and female. Cost is $15 per person and includes light refreshments.
