Dale Peers, Her Crowning Glory

Saturday, October 27
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Once upon a time, every princess wore a crown and every woman, a hat. Hats can be worn to hide the head and at the same time reveal information about the wearer. A woman’s social standing, personality, and fashionability may all be stated through her choice of millinery. Dale Peers, Professor and Costume Coordinator of the Seneca’s Fashion Resource Centre, will describe some of the important roles millinery has played in society and fashion over the decades, with examples from the Centre’s collection.
