Virtual Style Talk: Wartime Fashions with Karen AntonowiczTuesday August 9, 2022
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Fashion expert Karen Antonowicz will give a virtual talk about "Wartime Fashion" this evening. 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 colorful program with lots of enjoyable images to see to illustrate the presentation.
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 Rhode Island, and she speaks about clothing, accessories, antiques, and related subjects often at various organizations. Karen's Vermont company, Spirits of Fashion, is the vehicle for producing lectures and workshops on all eras of the history of fashion.
