Prepare to time travel to the court of Versailles and Georgian Britain, and join fashion historians and designers Lauren Stowell and Abby Cox for a tutorial and conversation on 18th century fashion, illustrated by live models.

Lauren Stowell is the founder and CEO of American Duchess Inc. and Royal Vintage Shoes LLC and a footwear historian with a love of 18th century dress. Abby Cox is a historian of decorative arts and mantua maker. Their company American Duchess Inc. has been providing historically accurate lady’s shoes and accessories featured in television and theatrical productions all over the world, including ABC’s Once Upon a Time, Starz’s Outlander and American Gods, Broadway’s Hamilton: An American Musical, Dangerous Liaisons and Cinderella. Their shoes have also been used by the New York Metropolitan Opera, and have walked the red carpet at the Academy Awards.

With their book “The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking”, Lauren and Abby endeavor to make historical dressmaking techniques accessible to create period gowns in every sewing room.

18th century fashion is highly encouraged.

Books will be available for purchase.
