Style for the Golden Years: a Fashion Talk

April 8, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

Program canceled due to lack of registration.

On Saturday, April 8 at 11:00 a.m., Canton Public Library offers an in-person talk with our favorite fashion history expert, Ren Antonowicz, from Spirits of Fashion. Ren reveals our possibilities in her latest program, “Style for the Golden Years,” where she’ll show how creative women “of a certain age” can motivate us all toward looking terrific this spring.

Style is eternal!  As we age, we may think that style no longer matters and that we shouldn’t worry about expressing ourselves with fashion.  With Ren’s help, we’ll see women of advanced age dressing in fabulous and unique ways, refusing to give up their authentic style and glamour.  Join us and be inspired!

Karen (Ren) Antonowicz received her Master’s Degree in Textiles, Fashion Merchandising, and Design, with a concentration in Historic Costume & Textiles from the University of RI.  She then taught History of Fashion and other courses full time at the college level for 13 years, and taught part time in the Continuing Education program at the RI School of Design. In the meantime, Ren and her husband, Mike, opened Nostalgia Antiques & Collectibles, a 3-floor co-op located on historic Wickenden Street in Providence, RI and ran the business for five years.  Ren continues to follow her passion for historic costume by conducting fashion era presentations, such as “The Fashions of Downton Abbey” at libraries, senior centers, schools, historical societies, and historic homes. Spirits of Fashion was developed by Ren as a vehicle for conducting these various lectures and workshops on all eras of Fashion History.

The program is free. To attend, please register online on the library’s Upcoming Programs page or phone us at 860-693-5800. The library is located at 40 Dyer Avenue in Canton. If you have questions, please call/email Katie Bunn at the library, kbunn@townofcantonct.org.
