Susan Jerome, textile expert from the Unversity of Rhode Island will explore the many changes that occurred throughout the time period depicted in Downton Abbey and how these changes influenced fashion. The social, technological, and political changes of the early twentieth century were reflected in the notable evolution of women’s and men’s clothing. This powerpoint presentation will look back at what was fashionable – real or otherwise. We will look at some of the influential designers and other persons involved in the years of the first five seasons.
