An Afternoon Tea with costume designer extraordinaire Julia Soares-McCormick
Tuesday 13 March, 2.30 – 4.30 pm  £23

We are delighted to welcome back Julia who will has a new talk for us entitled ‘Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution’. This exciting talk draws comparison between the large elaborate court gowns worn by Marie Antoinette for formal court occasions and the Chemise a la Reine which she preferred. This chemise dress caused quite a scandal and solidified hatred of Marie Antoinette. The display includes some reproduction 18th Century costumes, one of which is a very elaborate Pink Silk court dress Robe a La Francaise worn with large ornate pompadour wig and accessories. We will also see the Chemise a la Reine worn with a Bergere hat and powdered curled hair, and even some 18th Century underwear! A wonderful afternoon tea will follow with plenty of sandwiches and sweet treats, not to be missed.
