Women’s Fashion at the End of the 19th Century
with Costume Historian Christine Scott
Saturday, April 27, 2013
12:15 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
Christine’s extensive collection of historic reproduction clothing illustrates the art of dressing during several different time periods, ranging from the early Victorian era of the 1840s to the so-called Gay 1890s. Beautiful, award-winning examples of underpinnings, dresses, shoes, jewelry, hats, and all other forms of delightful Victorian frippery, will be displayed, explained, and demonstrated.
At last year’s Extravaganza Ms. Scott introduced us to women’s attire of the early half of the 19th Century. This year’s focus will be on the 1880’s and 1890’s.
Saturday, April 27th, 12:30pm-1:45pm at the Greater Astoria Historical Society Quinn Building, 35-20 Broadway, 4th Floor, Long Island City, NY 11106 (718)-278-0700
