Before seeing the much-anticipated film, join us for an exciting look back at the lives and fashions of the residents of Downton Abbey! In this illustrated presentation Karen Antonowicz explores the 1912 fashions represented in season 1 of Downton Abbey, through the 1920s, when major changes occurred both in fashion and society. Ms. Antonowicz will also have garments and accessories from these periods available to examine up close.

To continue the Downton Abbey nostalgia, register for afternoon tea, served at the Sweet Escape at the Terrace Café immediately following the presentation. Fancy hats and/or period dress encouraged!
