Fashion historian Cassidy Zachary will deliver a public lecture on the topic of Women Fashion Designers and the Birth of Modern Dress on Sunday, March 8 at 3pm at the UNM School of Architecture's George Pearl Hall Auditorium (UNM Main Campus). Do you still think “Coco” Chanel invented modern fashion out of whole cloth in the 1920s? Wrong again. Zachary will break down the real deal about Gordon, Vionnet, Lanvin, Paquin and the other pioneering women that preceded Chanel at this event hosted by the Albuquerque International Association. Tickets are $20 for the general public, $15 for Albuquerque International Association members and free for students under 30 (oldsters pay full price). For tickets and more information about this all-ages event, see abqinternational.org.
