Robert Wark Lecture | Fashion Victims: Dress at the Court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette
The Huntington Art Gallery, San Marino, CA, 7 May 2015

fashion-victims_400Fashion historian Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell discusses one of the most exciting, controversial, and extravagant periods in the history of fashion: the reign of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette in 18th-century France. She explores the exceptionally imaginative and uninhibited styles of the period leading up to the French Revolution, as well as fashion’s surprising influence on the course of the Revolution itself. A book signing and coffee reception will follow the lecture. Thursday, 7 May, at 7:00pm, Rothenberg Hall.

The Cafe will be open for light suppers prior to this event. From 5:30pm until the start of the program, attendees can enjoy selected items including artisan pizzas, sushi, cheeses and charcuterie, and beer or wine in the new dining venue overlooking the gardens.
