To kick off the Fall portion of our Costume Society of America Western Region season, we are pleased to announce our next program, In Royal Style: Fashion and Tradition in Regal Dress, on Saturday, September 26, 2015. This one-day symposium, graciously hosted by the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum (FIDM) in Los Angeles, explores nineteenth- and twentieth-century royal attire from Europe and Asia, and features lectures by noted fashion historians/curators and CSA Western Region members Dale Gluckman, Melissa Leventon, Kevin Jones, and Christina Johnson. Morning lectures will be followed in the afternoon by curator-guided tours of three exhibitions in the FIDM Museum Galleries and book signing. A boxed lunch will be served on the FIDM campus; a no-host cocktail social at a Down Town Los Angeles location will conclude the day's events.
