Window Dressing: Fashion and Architecture @ Newton Free Library

Coco Chanel famously said that “fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” In this presentation, Jill Carey, curator of the Lasell Fashion Collection and an associate professor and at Lasell College, explores architectural details from historic homes in Newton and how such elements are expressed within The Lasell Fashion Collection. See how trends in architecture and in fashion reflect one another, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries. Part of the Newton History Series.
