Photos for S03E01 - The Georgians: Dress to Impress

In the first episode of season three we take a good look at the more fun and unusual aspects of Georgian Fashion. Think umbrellas and hair towers rather than dresses and bonnets... Here are the accompanying photos for the episode:




"The Bum Shop"

Print by artist and caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson. This photo was taken by us at Buckingham Palace, at the Royal Collection Trust exhibition: "Style & Society: Dressing the Georgians".

"Chloe's Cushion or the Cork Rump" by M Darly, 1777

This lady has a fake bottom substantial enough to act as a comfy chair for her pet dog, and a huge hair tower to top it all off.



Portrait by Henry Edridge of Princess Sophia, daughter of George III and Queen Charlotte, and a pair of spectacles

These photos were taken by us at Buckingham Palace, at the Royal Collection Trust exhibition: "Style & Society: Dressing the Georgians".




"The Extravaganza" by M Darly, 1776

A fantastic hair tower decorated with enormous feathers, fruit, flowers and birds!
