All throughout history, death has inspired finery and fashion for both the dead and the living. 

Join us as we look at the stories behind some of death's most fascinating vanities, those who chose beauty over longevity, the glamourous world of celebrity stiffs, and funeral fashion trends. After the talks, we will be showing a documentary about a fashion designer who designs custom made bio-degradable burial garments with client family participation.
