Join UCF Libraries and Kimberly Wilmot Voss, Nicholson School of Communication, for a Women’s History Month Author Talk titled “Florida Fashions in the 1950s and 1960s” on Friday, March 25, 2022!

For decades, most metropolitan newspapers had fashion editors in their women’s pages and some of the best of these journalists were in Florida. Areas like fashion journalism were where women were making their mark for decades – attending fashion shows, writing about local stores and guiding their readers on fashion trends. They covered changes in swimsuit regulations, the wearing of pants in the workplace and the rising of skirt-lengths. These editors served as social critics and community connectors – while also having lots of fun.
