Category: Non-NEAFCS Webinar

In celebration of Women’s History Month and to provide valuable content in the area of Apparel, Textiles, and Design, the National Partnership is pleased to offer a FREE upcoming webinar, Made It: The Women Who Revolutionized Fashion.  Additional educational resources will be shared during the event.  We hope you will join us for this special event.

Join Petra Slinkard Director of Curatorial Affairs and the Nancy B. Putnam Curator of Fashion and Textiles as she walks you through the Peabody Essex Museum’s latest exhibition Made It: The Women Who Revolutionized Fashion. The exhibit highlights more than 100 works, spanning 250 years, recognizing women's often-overlooked contributions to the fashion and design industry. From Mary Todd Lincoln’s dressmaker, Elizabeth Keckley to Elsa Schiaparelli and Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, to experimental labels like Chromat, women designers have transcended genres and revolutionized ideas of identity.

A copy of Petra's book The Women Who Revolutionized Fashion will be given away to one participant during the live event!
