WORN Fashion Journal Presents: Dressed as in a Painting Launch

Join us at Type Books for an evening of fashion book fun

In Dressed as in a Painting: Women and British Aestheticism in an Age of Reform, author Kimberly Wahl provides a lucid exploration of the interrelations between fashion, art, and aestheticism during the latter half of the nineteenth century.

On Friday, October 11, join Kimberly Wahl, WORN Fashion Journal, and Type Books for refreshments and conversation as we celebrate the release of Dressed as in a Painting. Wahl’s book is the first to focus exclusively on aesthetic dress and its various expressions in the visual cultures of Victorian Britain and will be a necessary addition for fashion libraries, fashion historians, and fashion lovers everywhere.
