Nancy Reppert of Sweet Remembrances will prepare an elegant afternoon tea and Janeal Jaroh of Time Traveler Trunks will present From Titanic to Keep Calm and Carry On: Fashion and Change in Downton Abbey. Transformation and upheaval are often expressed through dramatic shifts in fashion. Through the episodes of Downton Abbey we experienced relationships between different social classes, political and economic upheaval, and changes in gendered expectations We will relate to the characters and events subliminally or boldly conveyed through changing fashions from 1912 - 1945.
