Lillian Williams is an American who has lived in France for over 30 years. She is renowned for creating sumptuous interiors in her 18th century houses as well as amassing an important collection of 18th century fashion. Her expert eye has enabled her to find the most precious and unusual pieces that rarely survive.

Join Dr. Alexandra Palmer, ROM's Senior Curator, Nora E. Vaughan Fashion Costume Curatorship, for an illustrated talk and learn how and why the ROM recently acquired one of the last collections of 18th century fashion still in private hands.
