Social History Through Clothing: Aesthetics, Dress Reform and the Gibson Girl

May 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$35

Explore how presentations of clothing, through paintings and photographs, show us a changing society. Confronting the fashionable standards promoted during the Industrial Revolution, artists and individuals of the Aesthetic Movement argued that garments should provide the wearer with comfortable options. The Rational Dress Society promoted the idea of Dress Reform to improve the health of women and encourage participation in sports. The Gibson Girl, as created by American illustrator Charles Dana Gibson, epitomized the New Woman of health and vitality. [2 Sessions] Instructor: Gretchen Vaughn
