Featuring a dynamic display of historic autos throughout the garden, the invitational will highlight the style, performance, fashion, and technology of rolling design. Design is at the very heart of Winterthur. From the garden to the room settings to the library, Winterthur is a world-renowned font of design inspiration. Building on this legacy, this event will celebrate the rich history of 20th century automotive design. At 1:00 pm, enjoy the lecture “Fashion and Cars: Advertising Automobiles and Clothing over the Decades” presented by Gregory J. Landrey, senior furniture conservator emeritus, and Laura Mina, associate conservator of textiles.
