Explore the fascinating history of women’s and men’s pockets in this virtual lecture featuring a tie-on pocket in the collection. Through the 18th century, women used the tie-on pocket, an accessory worn under the skirt and wrapped around the waist. Men had pockets integrally stitched into the three-piece suit. Hannah Carlson, Winterthur summer research fellow and senior lecturer in the apparel design department at the Rhode Island School of Design, will explore the “pocket question,” and politics of individual preparedness and privacy. Registration required.
