A Century of Ladies' Fashion

Ladies' fashions have evolved from the Victorian Era of high collars, long sleeves and corsets to the bare arms of the roaring twenties and onto the mini skirt introduced in 1964.  Historian, Joyce Yexley has collected twelve decades of ladies' vintage wear from 1865 to 1970. With volunteer models and powerpoint, Joyce shares the changing fashion silhouette influenced by social and economical conditions from Queen Victoria to the women on the Dakota prairie. It is an entertaining program for all ages--even men.
Programs vary from 30 to 50 minutes.
