Inquiry welcomes LINDA PRZYBYSZEWSKI, Associate Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame. Her new book is THE LOST ART OF DRESS: THE WOMEN WHO ONCE MADE AMERICA STYLISH. For much of the Twentieth Century a group of woman called “The Dress Doctors” , followed the lead of the Arts and Crafts Movement and through classes and books, taught women dressmaking, clothes budgeting and the fundamentals of style: harmony, rhythm, balance, proportion, and emphasis. They encouraged women to dress for success in the workplace and aimed to turn women into creators not shoppers. Tune in and learn about this little known, but fascinating history of fashion in America and why women’s hats need to make a comeback.
