Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen
Presented by: Taft Museum of Art
Taft Museum of Art
316 Pike Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202
6:30pm EDT - 7:30pm EDT
This presentation will be in conjunction with the Taft Museum exhibit “Jane Austen: Fashion & Sensibility,” which includes approximately 50 costumes from many Jane Austen film and television productions.
Using fashion prints from her collection, Candice will provide an overview of the types of clothing worn during the time of Jane Austen. Candice will explore fashions for various occasions or activities, including day wear, evening wear, and specialty fashions such as court dress, riding habit, and mourning dress. Terms used during the period — such as undress, half dress and full dress — will be explained and illustrated with prints. Popular types of outerwear will also be showcased, including pelisses, spencers, mantles, and shawls. The general evolution of style will also be discussed, including changing waistlines, hemlines, and trimmings.
