Bustles, Hoopskirts and Cages

What was under the dress?                                                              We see paintings and drawings of fashions in the past but we don't often see what was underneath the clothes helping to create the shapes which make for period defining silhouettes.                    Farthingales will be offering a free "trunk show" of structural under garments (bustles, hoop skirts, cage crinolines, panniers and farthingales) to demonstrate how dresses of the past got their shape. This "trunk show" will be held on Friday, October 25th  and Saturday, October 26th during the Creativ Festival in Toronto, Ontario.  Both events will be held at 1 p.m.                                          If  historic costumes are not really of interest then think outside the could you apply these techniques to contemporary fashion? Learn about the materials and techniques used to make shapes.  Access to the demo is free with admission to the Creativ Festival where you'll find tons of stuff to see and an opportunity to purchase supplies.
