Shakespeare wrote that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely players.” When the stage is the world of politics, clothing – or costume – choices can communicate complicated messages to those paying attention. In this unique brunch and learn runway event, Howard Vincent Kurtz, George Mason University Professor Emeritus of Theater and former Associate Curator of Costumes and Textiles at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens in Washington D.C., will discuss dressing for political events using live fashion models styled by local experts, Juli Downs, Manager at Narcissus and Marvin Boatman, CEO at AnotherBoatmanCreation.
