[Talk] Vintage clothes, fashions from the 1920s-60s.

Hi lovelies,

Another talk, this one is an updated version of an old favourite, a quick look at ladies fashions from the ’20s to the ’60s. I like this talk a lot because it takes you on a nice circuit from one revolutionary time to another, and covers a lot of cultural and technological change. Fashion from the one era was inspired by the earlier one with lots of nice images to illustrate.

Like all my talks in these interesting times, it will be online and you can join from wherever you are. Hurrah for that! I love technology, it’s really making so many things more accessible.

From the website: Presentation by fashion historian Nicole Jenkins on fashion from the 1920s-60s, illustrated with authentic outfits of the time. The talk will cover topics such as style and design elements, garment construction, social and cultural change impacts, and more.
