Atlanta History Center says
The Atlanta History Center is pleased to partner with SCAD Atlanta to offer this special keynote lecture to accompany the Fashion in Good Taste exhibition. Using the exhibition as a guide fashion historian Carmela Spinelli will discuss the fashion trends and designers featured in Fashion in Good Taste, and compare and contrast fashion in Atlanta to what was happening in New York City and internationally during the 1920s through the 1960s.

Carmela Spinelli is a fashion historian and coordinator of International Special Projects at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She travels extensively lecturing on fashion and design, coordinates international admissions and recruitment, and leads innovative curriculum and academic initiatives. Spinelli also served as Chair of the Fashion and Accessory Design Department at SCAD, developing curriculum for SCAD locations in Savannah, Atlanta, La Coste, France, and Hong Kong. Prior to this role she served as Associate Chair of the Department of Fashion Design at Parson’s The New School of Design, under renowned chair Tim Gunn.

Fashion in Good Taste explores Atlanta’s past through fashion for each of the decades that Swan House was occupied by the Inman family. The exhibition comprises 28 examples of women’s and men’s clothing, including two women’s hats. Six of the pieces were designed or created by Georgia women. They include Atlanta designers Clyde Ingram, Thelma Swafford, and Ann Moore; Atlanta milliners Loretta Bonta and Lillian B. Head; and North Georgia weaver Mary Crovatt Hambidge.

Fashion in Good Taste is generously funded by Emily Bourne Grigsby.

Admission for all lectures is $5 members, $10 nonmembers, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted. Reservations are required. For more information, please call 404.814.4150.
