Did you know that the things we do in the name of fashion can make you sick, break your bones, and even kill you? It’s true! It can even drive you mad!

This program takes a look at 18th- and 19th-century fashions and the deadly secrets hiding behind those fabulous looks.

We’ll tackle some of those urban myths, too, including whether it was possible for Scarlet O’Hara to have an 18-inch waist!

Program presented by historian Kathy Wilson.

Saturday May 20th, 10:00-11:30 AM
