The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will host its annual Tea on Sunday, Nov. 13, 2 -4 p.m. titled, Fashion Influencers Across History: Social Tea. Co-chaired by LMMM Trustees Pam Murrin and Victoria Vandamm, this event will be a luxurious whirlwind of delicious refreshments that will immerse our guests in the history of the Mansion, the current exhibitions on view, and a fascinating talk by award-winning scholar and author Kathleen Craughwell-Varda.

Ms. Varda will introduce attendees to American fashion icons and present-day influencers who have defined, now and through the centuries, American style. With no monarchy to emulate, Americans have long been drawn to women who possessed style, charisma, and grace. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis possessed these qualities in abundance. This presentation titled, Looking for Jackie: American Fashion Icons, will provide an examination of American women who were the “Jackies” of their era, women who, since the 1800s, have had a similar impact on American fashion. The lecture will reveal how these women’s distinctive personal styles captured the imagination of the American public and influenced popular fashion.
