Day out with mum, The Queens Gallery, and tea!

Wonderful day out with my mother to the “In Fine style” exhibition at the Queens Gallery, a little walk around are gorgeous capital city, and ending with a bit of tea.

Great seeing amazing paintings and clothing from a time when fashion was used to command importance and social position, and different countries were influencing changes through techniques and materials, as well as tastes. Here are a few pictures.

“In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion
The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace
Friday, 10 May 2013 to Sunday, 06 October 2013

This exhibition explores the sumptuous costume of British monarchs and their court during the 16th and 17th centuries through portraits in the Royal Collection. During this period fashion was central to court life and was an important way to display social status. Royalty and the elite were the tastemakers of the day, often directly influencing the styles of fashionable clothing.

In Fine Style follows the changing fashions of the period, demonstrates the spread of styles internationally and shows how clothing could convey important messages. Including works by Hans Holbein the Younger, Nicholas Hilliard, Van Dyck and Peter Lely, the exhibition brings together over 60 paintings, as well as drawings, garments, jewellery, accessories and armour.”
