Valerie Kienzle joins us to present her new book, Ready to Wear: A History of the Footwear and Garment Industries in St. Louis, MO. At one time, St. Louis was one of the fashion capitals of the world, having started as a fur trading village and growing to a bustling clothing production and footwear hub in the 19th century. Kienzle’s book charts the rise, fall, and rebirth of St. Louis as an iconic fashion city.
