In the past, the mourning of a loved one was observed by a complex code of behavior and fashion. Learn about the standards of mourning dress from the earliest documented period, right up to modern day. This lecture will include visual extant period mourning garments from the collection of the speaker April C. Thomas of Fashions Revisited. This special day includes a full Afternoon Tea party prepared by Nancy Reppert of Sweet Remembrances as well.
