LECTURE – Making It: Creating Fashion in Early Modern Europe (online/in-person)
November 18 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CSTFree to Paid
Annette Becker, director and curator, UNT CVAD Texas Fashion Collection. Have you ever wondered how delicate, handmade lace is created or how stiff ruffs stayed so crisp and white? And before department stores and boutiques, how did gentlemen procure elaborately embroidered suits? In celebration of the exhibition Canvas & Silk: Historic Fashion from Madrid’s Museo del Traje, join Texas Fashion Collection director Annette Becker in an exploration of the lives of garments from the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries. Together we’ll discover the surprisingly laborious and often creative processes of commissioning, creating, and caring for garments represented in portraiture and featured in the exhibition, allowing us a greater understanding of how people’s lives were intertwined with clothing. This program is sponsored by the Cultural Office of the
Embassy of Spain.
Tickets are available for online and in-person:
