guests) this truely unique opportunity for private tours of two fashion
exhibitions at the Getty. Organized by CSA member, friend and

The program includes insider curator-led tours of two fashion related

lunch and continued conversation with the curators.

Parisian town house, including dressing.

Fashion in the Middle Ages, explores the figures depicted in
illuminated pages of medieval manuscripts, which could be recognized at
a glance by the clothing they wore.
Participation is limited to 40 participants and I’d suspect that it
will fill up fast. It’s open to Costume Society of America Members and
non-Members alike, so register soon (deadline July 25)!
