Lasell College Professors to Give Talk on Style of 'Downton Abbey'

Professors from the Newton college will cover the fashion of Downton Abbey as part of a "Ladies of Downton Abbey" event.

Whether it's the Dowager Countess' elaborate evening dresses, or Lady Sybil's Harem pants in Season One, the fashion in "Downton Abbey" is almost as much of a star as the characters themselves.

And if you've ever been curious to learn more about the style of "Downton", mark your calendars for an event tomorrow night with two Lasell College fashion professors. 

Lasell College Fashion Department Chair Lynn Blake and Lasell Fashion Collection Curator Jill Carey will give a talk tomorrow night, January 8, about the evolving styles of the hit PBS series, "Downton Abbey." 

The presentation will take place at the Fisher School in Westwood as part of a special program on the "Ladies of Downton Abbey" hosted by the Westwood Historical Society.

"Downton Abbey" is heading into its third season, which premiered on January 6. The series is now in post-World War I England, chronicling the social and economic changes of the 1920s.

Tomorrow night's "Ladies of Downton Abbey" event will start at 7:30 p.m. at the Fisher School (830 High St., Westwood) and is free and open to the public.
