Breeches, Bonnets and Bags: Fashion in Art through the Centuries.
Rosalind Whyte

Rosalind is a Guide and Lecturer at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Royal Academy. She lectures frequently at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London.

This lecture follows the different fashions as revealed in paintings, looking at dress and accessories, and some of the more ridiculous styles of fashion from the 16th century to the 19th century. It focuses particularly on fashion in
England, but looks also at some contrasting Continental fashions. In times when Sumptuary Laws prescribed what you could wear, according to your status in society, fashion was a reflection of social standing.
