The Fashion Club, moderated by Mrs. Curley, recently had special guest Beth Chamberlain give a presentation about fashion. She presented her lecture in the Emmanuel Room with an audience of 20 students.
Beth Chamberlain has over 20 years of experience in fashion history of the 19th century. In her presentation to the club, she lectures about the use of different types of clothing; such as, clothing of status, in profession, and the clothing revolution in life from baby to adulthood. She showed samples of these clothes in her presentation.
“It truly was a great presentation,” Gem Posillico remarked. “The fashion club and I were able to learn a lot of wonderful things about fashion throughout the years. Beth Chamberlin put emphasis on how ‘Clothes often depended on your social status, religion, and culture.’ And that ‘The way you dress is a powerful tool used throughout history and in our world today.’.”
From the red, blue, and gray blazers to the penny loafers we wear every day, it can be hard to express creativity in our everyday fashion choices. The Kellenberg Fashion Club not only teaches students about fashion history all over the world, but allows you to create and design new clothing ideas. The Fashion Club helps grow your talent, and make new friends!
