Dress Tutorials by Women’s History Museum and Daffy Scanlan revise the complex history of women’s dress. The rescue of each garment or garment fragment is a personal rebirth—each dress an amalgamation of eras, purposes, codes, textiles. Napkin rings meet couture. Temporary tattoos accent fleece. Visibility and invisibility become muddied as each layer piles up; some garments protect as much as they excite. Well beyond cute, these garments are fantastic, guiding us to new fashion futures.
Tune in, learn your history, and unlace that corset.
