Breeches, Bonnets and Bags – Rosalind Whyte

16 September @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Rosalind Whyte in Cinema 1, The Crossing Theatre Narrabri, for an informative evening on Breeches, Bonnets and Bags

This arts talk follows different fashions as revealed in paintings, looking at dress and accessories, and some of the more ridiculous styles of fashion from the 16th century to the 19th century. Whilst the ordinary working folk might have longed for a wardrobe full of reds, purples and golds (or, indeed, for a wardrobe at all!), their ‘superiors’ may well have envied them their ability to move freely in their clothes, without ruffs, stuffed sleeves, enormous petticoats, or headdresses the size of small animals …. sometimes also containing small animals! Have fun exploring the wildest extremes of fashion through the ages.

Rosalind Whyte holds a BA and MA from Goldsmith’s College, and an MA (distinction) from Birkbeck College. An experienced guide at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, the Royal Academy and Greenwich, she also lectures on cruises and at the Tate to independent art societies.

$35 on night
