Royal Fashions: Court Splendour from the Tudors to Today

Dates: Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 September 2022
Times: 11.00–13.00 BST 
Location: Online (Zoom Webinar) 
Tutor: Jacqui Ansell

Description: Why do kings and queens wear ermine? How can we decode court dress in art? In the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, consider the artists who have immortalised monarchs and learn about the vital elements of courtly clothing, seen over five centuries.

‘The splendour of royalty delights the people’, so Queen Victoria was told. A Victorian viewer would still recognise much in the richness and regulation of court ceremony today. Indeed, much of the royal regalia of Elizabeth II can be traced back to the era of Elizabeth I, if not earlier. In this course, we’ll analyse the development of courtly clothing to learn how the iconography of majesty has been constructed.
