After six seasons and more than 450 episodes of the podcast, we are excited to offer the opportunity to continue your fashion history education with our very first online course offerings with
Dressed: The School of Fashion.
Euro-American Fashion's Innovators and Icons is the first course offering from our ongoing Great Designers Series. Structured in two parts, Euro-American Fashion's Innovators and Icons will introduce us to influential designers who have shaped the world as we wear it. We will hear their life stories, share in their successes (and scandals!) and learn to visually identify the design elements characteristic of their work.
Euro-American Fashion's Innovators and Icons, Part I is taught by Dressed co-founder and host April Calahan. Registration is open for Part I of this series, which covers a selection of fashion's great makers working between the 18th and early 20th centuries.
What Women Wore to the Revolution is the first online course offering from Dressed podcast, taught by Dressed co-founder and host Cassidy Zachary. In this two-part, eight class series, Cassidy will take you on a journey through the evolution and revolution of Euro-American women’s fashion from the 1850s to 1960s—from crinolines to miniskirts—a period marked by seismic transformations both in the clothing women wore and the lives they led. This class will use clothing as a lens to learn more about the many remarkable innovators and innovations that quite literally changed the face and shape of fashion by pushing the boundaries of what came before. In addition, you will learn the foundational skills needed to properly date and identify fashions from the eras covered. Registration is open for Part I of this series, covering the years 1850s-1920s.
