On Tuesday, 6/23 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., “Spirits of Fashion” consultant Karen Ren Antonowicz will present a virtual program this evening called “Shoes through the Decades.”
Are you curious about the footwear of years gone by? If so, join us as we explore the evolution of shoes from the reign of Queen Victoria through the decades of the 20th Century. We will discover the changes that occurred in footwear for women and men of the 19th and 20th centuries, emphasizing the influences that precipitated these changes. This program will be presented by Karen Ren Antonowicz of “Spirits of Fashion.” Ms. Antonowicz has a Masters from the University of Rhode Island and has taught the History of Fashion and other college courses for 13 years. For 5 years she and her husband, Mike, ran Nostalgia Antiques & Collectibles in RI and she speaks about the subject often at various organizations. Her Vermont company, Spirits of Fashion, is the vehicle for producing lectures and workshops on all eras of the history of fashion.
