Historic Fashion Show and Discussion @ Old Economy Village classroom
Mar 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Old Economy Village curator, Sarah Buffington, will present a one-person fashion show of women’s clothing from the Harmonist times.  Clothing will include antiques and high-quality reproductions from the 18th century through the 19th century.  Ever wonder what was worn underneath those clothes and why?  Sarah will discuss the evolution of both clothing and underclothing of this period.

Sarah Buffington holds a degree in Apparel Design and Textiles with an Historic Emphasis from Michigan State University.  Her participation in multiple eras of re-enacting has led her through extensive research into historic clothing.  Sarah has been curator at Old Economy Village since 2002.  Before coming here, Sarah worked at the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village and the Michigan State University Museum.
