Best Trends Forever

What kind of look have you been going for these days? Are you still hot on the ladylike trend? Or have the nautical stripes dominated your closet lately? Are you considering rocking a tail hem in spring 2011?

If you can read through that first graph without wondering what the heck we’re talking about, we’ve got the event for you. “Through Fashion’s Looking Glass: Europe in the 1950s and 1960s” is a docent-led talk and tour through post World War II Europe and the fashions that emerged for the next 20 years. Learn how Paris became glamorous again to gain the title of fashion capital of the world. Then see how miniskirts, man-made fibers, and ready-to-wear hit the London scene.

Docent Lois Albert begins her talk at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 12, at the Phoenix Art Museum.

Wed., Jan. 12, 12:30 p.m., 2011
