From the hooped underskirt to the emergence of the short skirt, explore the changing fashion of the rich and famous Tudors and Stuarts at Buckingham Palace this summer.
During this period elite luxurious clothing was an essential component of court life. Garments and accessories and the way in which they were worn conveyed important
messages about wealth, gender, age, social position, marital status and religion.
Using paintings, drawings and prints from the Royal Collection, plus rare surviving examples of clothing and accessories, the exhibition traces changing tastes in fashionable attire and the spread of fashion through the royal courts of Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries.
