From political leaders to rock heroes and movie stars. Starting with the Regency Balls to Glastonbury Festivals, we will observe how fashion has been a sign of wealth, power, political beliefs and distinction throughout recent centuries. From Audrey Hepburn and Steve McQueen to the lesser known Jean Muir and Janey Ironside. We will focus on fashion movements such as the 1960s ‘Youthquake’ and Florence Wallace Pomeroy’s connection to the evolution of the Rational Dress Society from the 1880s.
