Class Experience

Students will trace the evolution of fashion during Queen Victoria's reign.
Students will identify key events in the world that influenced clothing during the 19th century.
Students will connect clothing styles with ideas of social status and gender expectation. 
Students will create their own Victorian-inspired outfit. 
I have been teaching fashion design and history for over 5 years. I love looking at historical events through the lens of clothing because of its connections to gender and social class and world history! 
Fashion bodies (croquis) that I will provide.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be discussing Victorian underwear and the lives of people in cities during the Industrial Revolution, which can be unpleasant.
