Sandy’s presentation DESPERATELY SEEKING FASHION will highlight her magnificent millinery as well as many other pieces from her collection and highlights from her life and unusual career.

“What is a fashion historian? I’m afraid it doesn’t come from years of highfalutin’ study and degrees from Yale. It comes from Sandy Schreier’s lifelong obsession with collecting and researching fashion and Hollywood costuming. Sandy, herself, the great unsung movie star!”
