Downton Abbey Tea and Talk

Celebrate the final season of Downton Abbey at the Fairfield Public Library, 1080 Old Post Road on Saturday, Nov. 14, in the Memorial Room. Enjoy the fun and camaraderie with other Downton fans as Susan Jerome presents Fashion and Social Change. She will talk about the costumes in the British television phenomenon at 2 p.m., tea and such will be served. Feel free to dress in the style of the show, as one of your favorite characters, or just as yourself.

The series is a fictional portrayal of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in a Yorkshire County estate with the backdrop of the historical events which affect their lives. The time period depicted in Downton Abbey had many social, technological and political changes that were reflected in the notable evolution of women’s and men’s clothing. This program will explore those changes by looking back at what was fashionable-real or otherwise.

Jerome is the Collection Manager at the University of Rhode Island Historic Textile and Costume Collection. She earned her MS degree from the URI Department of Textiles, Fashion Merchandising and Design. Ms. Jerome also works as a textile and quilt conservator and a consultant to museums and historical societies.

Advance registration is required due to the limited space. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event call 203-256-3160, or visit us on the web . Follow the Fairfield Public Library on Twitter: and Facebook:
