Fashion Culture: ‘Treasures Afoot: Shoe Stories from the Georgian Era’ with Kimberly Alexander
April 2, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join author Kimberly S. Alexander for a presentation of Treasures Afoot, her intriguing new book that interweaves biography and material culture with full-color photographs to tell how shoes were made, sold, and worn during the eighteenth century. Alexander traces the fortunes and misfortunes of wearers as their footwear was altered to accommodate poor health, flagging finances, and changing styles, raising fresh questions about everyday life in early America.
A book signing will follow the presentation.
This event is open to the public.
