Talking ‘Gilded Age’ Jewish clothes with YouTube’s favorite fashion historian

This week, we’re breaking down cosplay, “The Gilded Age” and Renaissance fairs with fashion history YouTuber Vi (pronounced “vee”) from the SnappyDragonStudios channel. We talk about Jewish 1880s fashion and Vi’s recreation of her great-great-grandmother’s dress, as well as “The Clothes on our Backs,” the YouTube series she produced with guidance from the Jewish Writers Initiative Digital Storytelling Lab.

Plus — you knew we had to — we take one more tour through “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” this time from a fashion perspective.
