Royal York United Church
Historical Fashions on Show
Bringing 200 Years of Fashion History to life in a lively and Dynamic show
Our dynamic show reveals the evolution of women's fashion during 200 years, and relates the evolution with trends in social history and period music.
We can bring our historical fashion show to your site for the entertainment and education of your audience. You can feature the show in your programme of special events, or as a fundraising event, or as an educational experience for members and students.
ou select a time period for your show to illustrate, and decide on the scope and how many costumed models you wish to have in your show.  Each live model is dressed to represent an historical period, complete with supporting undergarments, footwear, jewellery and millinery.  We have over 90 costumes - reproduction costumes developed from careful research, and actual 20th century garments.

We will be pleased to work with your events coordinator and committee to plan a colourful and attractive show.

The individuals  who will dress in the show costumes can be chosen from your supporters and volunteers.  Models can be any age.  Men and children can participate as models too.  Volunteer models always enjoy a thrilling experience in wearing historical costume.
