Join fashion historian and material culture scholar Annette Becker of the Texas Fashion Collection for an exploration of “At Home Fashion.”
While COVID-era dress might feel like a slackened state of sartorial affairs, our pandemic pajamas, sweatpants, and caftans are part of a longer lineage of at-home dress. Over the past century, clothing worn in domestic spaces has often pushed the fashion envelope. Additionally, these private contexts have inspired fashion designers to look beyond Euro-American culture for new ways of approaching comfort, leading to innovative, complicated, and often appropriated ‘new’ forms of dress.
