Join Allentown fashion historian and collector Ellie Laubner on Saturday, July 29, at 1 p.m. to explore a wide range of 1960s styles, from Jackie Kennedy’s classic elegance to the freewheeling flower children. This is the first talk in AAM’s “Fashion in Conversation” series. Laubner will discuss key designers, the influence of youth trends, and fashion’s significance in shaping American culture during this tumultuous era. The presentation, titled “Fashion in Flux,” will include a show-and-tell of selected garments from Laubner’s collection, as well as a conversation with Claire McRee, curator of the exhibition Fashion as Experiment: the ’60s.

Admission to the talk is free, but please RSVP. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
