First Ladies and the Politics of Fashion

Presenter: Annette B. Dunlap, Author and Freelance Writer

Throughout our nation’s history, first ladies have been the object of both admiration and criticism when it comes to their clothes. Whether it’s the style, the color, or the designer, we Americans have always had a thing or two to say about how the wife of our president dresses. Join us for a fun and informative talk about the fashion choices of our first ladies and the interesting stories behind some of the people who designed their clothes.
