SUNY New Paltz Theatre Arts Design Associate Professor Andrea Varga’s lecture will explore the shift in women’s fashion at the onset of the 20th century and how it reflected the changing middle-class. A new set of fashion styles called “sportswear” showed an increased interest in public and personal health, a growing cultural engagement in sporting activities, and a burgeoning desire in upper and middle class young women for a more active lifestyle.
