Historical Costume Club of Kingston Presents: Underwear through the Ages
Kingston Frontenac Public Library is excited to announce the eighth of our free monthly talks in the KFPL Live Monthly Speakers' Series. On Monday, Dec.14, we will be hosting the Historical Costume Club of Kingston's presentation on Underwear through the Ages.
People have always needed to stay warm, stay clean, and answer the call of nature. But each era has also had its own notions of propriety, style, and sex appeal. And of course upper levels of society have always had more wealth to spend on both outer- and underwear.
Join Britta Superville and the members of the Historical Costume Club of Kingston for a fun and informative survey of unmentionables through the ages, including full-size examples from the Club's clothing collection. You‘ll also discover how you too can learn to make accurate replicas of historic costumes.
