Fun With Fashion
with Marney Austin
Sunday's 2 - 3:30 PM 3 classes 2/7, 2/21, 2/28 2021
In this class we will talk about the various styles of costumes from the empire dresses of the 18th century to the 1980’s glitz and shoulder pads ala Dallas and Dynasty. We'll also touch on the eras between, including the Civil War and the Victorian era, the Roaring 20s, glamorous 40s, the more severe 50s and the Hippie influence of the 60s and 70s.
Finally we'll discuss the affects of war on silhouettes, fabrics, lengths, padding, necklines, etc., and we'll have a short bit on hairstyles and makeup. (We'll also touch briefly on those “unmentionables” — corsets, crinolines and pantaloons.)
