Victorian Lady 

Get the Lowdown on Downton at Storrs Library

If you love period dramas as much as we do you won’t want to miss performance artist Kandie Carle’s one-woman show entitled Victorian Lady at Storrs Library, 693 Longmeadow St., Longmeadow on Monday, March 24th at 6:30 pm.


Ms. Carle has assembled a vast collection of authentic Victorian and Edwardian clothing and accessories dating from the mid-Nineteenth Century to the turn of the Twentieth Century. The presentation is NOT a fashion show; rather, Ms. Carle takes her audience on a journey of discovery by using clothing and accessories as a tool. She dresses in layer upon layer of the clothing of the period and explains how each piece was worn as well as when and where. Throughout the presentation she shares insights into the fashion, lifestyle, manners and etiquette of men, women and children. Included are interesting anecdotes and “myth busting”.


This program is made possible by the generous support of the Storrs Library Board.
