There was a time when fashionable Victorian women accepted their duty to announce their families' wealth and status by dressing in excessive amounts of material made up into gowns displaying extreme embellishment.
Maryboro Lodge Fenelon Falls Museum presents a history of fashion at their Victorian Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday, July 20. 1:30 – 4:00 PM.
We invite you to come and enjoy a fashion parade that will take you from the time that the Maryboro Lodge was built, through the decades from 1837 of the Victorian era to the early 1920’s of the Edwardian era, describing how industrialization and machine production brought in fashion changes.
Relax, with a cup of tea in a china tea cup, accompanied by a fancy desert treat and take a few steps back in time to when women really dressed to impress. Then take a walk through the museum and discover, through video presentations and displays, what went on under the dress; hair and makeup techniques; how fashion clad ladies answered “nature’s call” and social etiquette of a gentler time.
Tickets are $10 and are available at the following locations:
Fenelon Falls - Maryboro Lodge Fenelon Falls Museum and The Lil’ Wee Quilt Shop
Coboconk - The Coboconk Public Library
Bobcaygeon - Paradiso Fashion
Lindsay – Appleseed Quilt Shop
Don’t delay, they won’t last long!
