Upcoming Tudor History event in Bath

It’s been ages since I’ve done a standalone post about an upcoming event after I started doing the monthly round-ups, but I wanted to get this one that takes place at the end of September out there in time for anyone in the area to have a chance to attend. (Updated to add – big thanks to J. Stephan Edwards of Some Grey Matter for the info on this talk!)


TWILIGHT TALK: Tudor Shirts and Blackwork Decoration

29th September 2016 at 6:00pm at the Fashion Museum, Bath

From the website:

Beneath their ornate doublets and richly decorated robes Tudor men and women of fashion chose to wear fine linen shirts, shifts, and smocks, frequently decorated with beautiful blackwork embroidery. Dr Susan North of the Victoria and Albert Museum will explore this hidden area of dress history, drawing on portraits of the time, as well as rare surviving garments from the time of Queen Elizabeth I.

Dr Susan North, Victoria and Albert Museum is senior curator in the Furniture, Fashion and Textiles Collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and a leading expert on dress of the 16th century.
