"A Bit of Corset History & the Benefits of Using Primary Resources"
Hilary Specht, our October speaker, is the owner of Period Corsets©, located in Seattle. We will be looking at the history of 18th and 19th century corsets and the process of corset product development. Corsets became quite fashionable in the 16th century Europe. The corset's 500 year reign appears to be the stiletto-heeled shoes of today in terms of the fashion and the way they restrict women's movement. Join us for an interesting discussion of something we see in the movies but have little personal knowledge of what our ancestors experienced.
