Victorian Secrets Lecture and Demonstration - Cultural anthropologist Michaele Thurgood Haynes unveils a fascinating peek into the boudoir of the Victorian Era with an array of the intimate undergarments—including the bustle, chemises and corsets—necessary then to “exaggerate the shape of a proper Victorian lady.” A live model will demonstrate the intricate procedures required to complete robing.  Haynes is author of Dressing up Debutantes: Pageantry and Glitz in Texas.
