A Special Springtime Fête during the new costume exhibition
Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics
Tuesday, April 18, 2017. 9:30 am–4:30 pm
Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina
Before touring the exhibits of costumes from historical films inspired by beloved novels, we’ll enjoy a sparkling Jane Austen Social over tea & scones while CSA Member Cornelia Powell delivers a behind-the-scenes look into the talented costume designers featured in the period exhibition. The day will also include Cornelia’s presentation “Victoria & Elizabeth: Recreating Crowns and Gowns”—queenly highlights from two new TV costume dramas. There will be gifts, door prizes, special guests, book signings, and a vintage jewelry pop-up boutique!

Funding is available each year to support mini-meetings within the Region by providing monies required to publicize these events (up to $125 per meeting). Meetings can be designed around a local event such as a theatrical performance or museum exhibition and can be in partnership with an organization, an historic home, a museum, or a bordering CSA region. These smaller versions of the Region’s annual symposium are encouraged because they not only provide local CSA members with costume programming but also foster interest in costume topics among potential members.
