Did you know that aprons were traditionally a garment for men, before they entered the kitchens of housewives everywhere? Or that they've made an appearance on fashion runways?
The Dearborn Historical Museum is hosting a clever lecture on the history of one of the world's most iconic fashion items—the apron—at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9, in the McFadden-Ross House.
The McFadden-Ross House is located at 915 Brady.
The free event is sponsored by the Dearborn Historical Museum Guild and the Dearborn Historical Society.
Public speaker Carol Brodbeck—who often gives presentations on such topics as gardening and the Victorian Era—is the presenter. Guests are invited to wear an apron or bring an example.
