Charles Dana Gibson. “At the Opera: If the Women Wear Crowns, Why Shouldn’t the Men?” [detail], 1907 print. Author’s Collection.
Please note that this event is SOLD OUT.  However, there are still tickets available for the other two lectures in this series – Gatsby’s Women: Fashionable Ideals of the 1920s and Pulling Down the Curtain: Exploring Walter Plunkett’s Hollywood Legacy.

Join Kevin Jones, Curator at the FIDM Museum, for a fascinating lecture on the opulent fashion of “The Gilded Age,” a term popularized by prolific writer and social-commentator Mark Twain. The Industrial Revolution’s greatest asset—money—helped to gild American and re-gild European societies. And, for the most part, this highly reflective gloss was applied with layers of elaborate dresses and overlapping jewels worn by the ‘Dollar Princess’ daughters of these ‘Robber Barons,’ five of whom are discussed in this lecture: Jennie Jerome, Consuelo Yznaga, Consuelo Vanderbilt, Helena Zimmerman, and May Goelet.

PMH’s Textile Arts Council is proud to partner with the curatorial staff of the FIDM Museum at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles to present a three-part lecture series featuring fashions throughout the decades. The other lectures in this series are Gatsby’s Women: Fashionable Ideals of the 1920s and Pulling Down the Curtain: Exploring Walter Plunkett’s Hollywood Legacy.

Moreover it may also be used to solve some other complaint as determined by your pharmacist. Certainly it isn’t all. When you order medicaments like Sildenafil 100mg you have to know about Sildenafil 100mg. Perhaps you already heard about it. The most common sexual problems in men are erectile dysfunction and ejaculation disorders. Young men suffer from erectile dysfunction need professional help.
