Fashion Culture: Treasures Afoot: Shoe Stories from the Georgian Era
On April 2, 2019, author Kimberly S. Alexander presented Treasures Afoot, her intriguing new book that interweaves biography and material culture with full-color photographs to tell how shoes were made, sold, and worn during the eighteenth century. Alexander traces the fortunes and misfortunes of wearers as their footwear was altered to accommodate poor health, flagging finances, and changing styles, raising fresh questions about everyday life in early America.
