The Couture Accessory Redux: Clare Sauro in conversation with Caroline Rennolds Milbank

Event Description

Join Drexel Westphal's Clare Sauro for a conversation with fashion historian Caroline Rennolds Milbank about some of her favorite couture accessories in the Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection at Drexel University.

Caroline Rennolds Milbank’s work in fashion history has included stints as an auction house expert (Sotheby’s and Doyle New York), appraiser, and consulting curator. However, she is perhaps best known as the author of several definitive volumes on fashion history such as "Couture: The Great Designers, New York Fashion" and "Fashion: A Timeline in Photographs."

One of her most beloved publications is "The Couture Accessory," a book that celebrates the visionary hats, bags, shoes, belts, scarves, gloves, and jewels fashioned by designers of the 20th century, beginning with Poiret, Vionnet, Chanel and Schiaparelli and continuing through to Azzedine Alaia, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino and Vivienne Westwood. Many of the accessories featured in the publication are now housed in the Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection.
