Inquiry welcomes LINDA PRZYBYSZEWSKI, Associate Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame. Her new book is THE LOST ART OF DRESS: THE WOMEN WHO ONCE MADE AMERICA STYLISH. For much of the Twentieth Century a group of woman called “The Dress Doctors” , followed the lead of the Arts and Crafts Movement and through classes and books, taught women dressmaking, clothes budgeting and the fundamentals of style: harmony, rhythm, balance, proportion, and emphasis. They encouraged women to dress for success in the workplace and aimed to turn women into creators not shoppers.
