In this five-part series of talks, our speaker Sharn Matthews will draw on her 40 years of hands-on experience to trace the history of female fashions through the ages.
From the extravagant wide skirts of the 18th century to the exaggerated shoulder pads of recent past, the talks (illustrated with images from museum costume collections across the country) will focus on everyday fashions of women through the last three hundred years.
