The American Look: Designing for the American Woman

Friday, February 21, 2014, 11:30 am - 1 pm


Although Paris claimed to be the center of the fashion world, already at the beginning of the twentieth century American women were beginning to develop their own style.  In this talk, retired history Professor Lynn Mally will look at how American designers and manufacturers created a distinctive American look. Spanning the period from 1900 to the present, this talk will pay special attention to archival resources at the UCI Libraries, including the papers of Southern California designer, Irene Saltern, and continue on to today's digital riches.
