Virtual Style Talk: Wartime Fashions to take place August 9 at Milton Public Library
On Tuesday, 8/9, at 7 p.m., there will be a fun Zoom talk with fashion expert Karen Antonowicz called “Virtual Style Talk: Wartime Fashions.” Have you ever wondered what changes in fashion occurred during World War I and World War II? Despite wartime shortages and restrictions, men and women managed to dress in style. How did they accomplish this? Join us to discover what these wartime shortages were and how they were overcome by the determined people of this era.
We will explore the clothing and accessories worn during both of these war periods, focusing on some of the innovative ways in which fashion was followed. This will be a very colorful program with lots of enjoyable images to see. The speaker has a Masters in the History of Fashion from the University of Rhode Island, and has taught this subject for 13 years. She also ran an antiques and collectibles company with her husband for 5 years before relocating in Vermont. If you love fashion, we hope to see you there! Again, advance registration is required to receive the connection link.
