« back to classes page
Imagine! There was once a time when women considered hats more important than shoes! This lecture series will include original slide presentations illustrating dramatic millinery designs from important collections and never-before-published historic imagery. Authentic head-turning hats will be on display covering every major era between 1770 to 1970. Hear dramatic stories about how glamorous headgear evolved into male-dominated factory businesses and gave birth to labor and endangered species laws. Understand the sculptural artistry, feminine self-expression, and profound importance of hats and bonnets in our American history.
