Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered what happened between the Victorian Age and the Roaring 20s that so drastically changed the way women dressed – forever?

The Preservation Artisans Guild invites you to this very special event on January 26th, 2018 as fashion historian, designer, and professional dressmaker extraordinaire Kay Demlow walks us through the various answers to that very question with a unique fashion show and presentation.

You’ll have the opportunity to view original antique garments in an engaging environment, surrounded by models dressed in detailed replica fashions. Together, we’ll learn how the garments were constructed, what was worn underneath, and how ever-changing technology, as well as evolving social structures, led to the new styles of the 20th century.

Mark your calendar! Period-inspired dress is encouraged but is not required.

Light refreshments and wine will be served at Fashion on the Edge of Change (each RSVP includes two drink tickets).

We are very pleased to be partnering with the lovely and local Elizabeth Chambers Cellar to serve their delicately balanced yet distinctive Pinot Noir and their small-batch, elegant Pinot Gris wines at the event.

DJ Powerless will also be with us for the evening, Spinning a large collection of 78’s and cylinders on a variety of different wind-up phonographs. Specializing in prohibition-era music (1920-1933) but pulling from recordings that range from the 00s into the late 30s. Mining forgotten gems of hot jazz, hillbilly, popular songs, Dixieland, dance band & instrumental novelties.
