Renowned Fashion Historian, Ivan Sayers, presents A Vintage Fashion Show featuring women’s fashion from the Victorian Era to the 1950s.
Drawing from the collection of fashion historian Ivan Sayers and the Permanent Collection of Touchstones Nelson, the Vintage Fashion Show will feature some incredible dresses from the first half of the 20th century. Sayers will demonstrate changes in women’s dress, tracing their gradual emancipation from restrictive clothing, and how this ran parallel to women’s social and political liberation.
Sayers is well known for the fashion shows, lectures and exhibitions he has presented across North America. A specialist in women’s, men’s and children’s fashions from 1650 to the present, he was the Vancouver Museum’s Curator of History from 1976-1990 and is now the curator of the Original Costume Museum Society.
Join us for an unforgettable evening of fun and fashion history! Seating is limited! It is recommended that you purchase your seat in advance in person or by calling 250-352-9813.
