Virtual History Happy Hour: Why We Wear, What We Wear
March 4 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
A social history of clothing in Victorian London, and how the evolution of clothing has influenced what we wear today.
Have you ever stopped to think about why we wear the things that we wear? What if we told you that some of the things you wear every day have been influenced by the way we thought about clothing and class in the 19th century?
Join our lecture to learn more about how social structures influenced who wore what in Victorian London, and how the evolution of clothing in the 19th century continues to influence our ideas about clothing and fashion today.
