Fashion in 18th-Century Colonial Spanish America: An Interview with Laura Beltrán-Rubio
Isabella Rosner interviewed me for her podcast, Sew What? We talked about my research on the consumption, dissemination, and representation of dress and practices of self-fashioning in 18th-century colonial Spanish America (specifically modern-day Colombia, Peru, and Venezuela). We also discussed some surviving South American costume and textiles, the presence of needlework in the Spanish colonies, and learning how to stitch from your grandmother!
