      As the current Programs Chair for the Western Region of the Costume
      Society of America, I’m pleased to be able to bring members (and
      guests) this truely unique opportunity for private tours of two fashion
      exhibitions at the Getty. Organized by CSA member, friend and
      all-around dynamo Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell it’s going to be a wopper
      of a good time. Tickets are limited (and going fast) so register early
      to avoid being put on the waiting list:

      J. Paul Getty Museum

      Los Angeles, CA

      The program includes insider curator-led tours of two fashion related
      exhibitions at the J. Paul Getty Museum, followed by a gourmet picnic
      lunch and continued conversation with the curators.

      Paris: Life & Luxury examines the everyday activities of a Rococo
      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)!
