Last Friday, I was so pleased to have two speaking engagements. The first was at my graduate-level alma mater, NYU Steinhardt, for students in the Costume Studies graduate program. What an honor to come back and discuss how I developed my thesis into a book! (I neglected to take a picture of the group, but here I am with the program's director and my wonderful former advisor, Nancy Deihl.)

After, onward to Sydney Maresca's Costume Design I & II class at Marymount Manhattan College, where I spoke about nail history and the relationship between clothing and cosmetic fashions. We had a great time! Please get in touch if you'd like to line up a lecture or round table about nails...I'd love to keep the academic discussion going!
