Neat and Plain: Dressing the 18th Century Virginian

January 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

Join us for our annual lecture series. January will feature Neal T. Hurst, Associate Curator of Costume and Textiles, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

Fashion during the 18th century changed quickly.  From free whites, enslaved Africans, and Native Americans, clothing played a key role in their everyday lives.  Using extant garments, written documentation, and portraiture, this lecture will explore the prevailing taste in fashion amongst Virginians, how they bought clothing, and what garments they wore.
