Please join us at Magwood on Thursday, November 28th, at 7pm for bubbly and a half hour presentation about the history of vintage costume jewelry by Eve Townsend, featuring examples from the boutique’s collection.
Guests are encouraged to wear and share their favourite vintage jewelry. After the lecture, Eve will do free historical assessments for those who want to know more about their pieces. Each person can have one item examined.
Eve Townsend is a graduate student (MA Fashion) at Ryerson University. Her main area of interest and research is the history of vintage costume jewelry. Although she has been wearing and collecting costume jewelry for nearly a decade, it was while working for the Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection that she discovered the possibility of looking at costume jewelry through an academic lens.
