I can’t say I’m a big fan of Georgian fashion. Many of the wigs were too tall, and they all look too hot and itchy.
And then there is the width of the skirt, which defies logic.
However, just look at these embroidered roses! I have to go to York next week for the last ordinary York Editors’ meeting of 2019, so I am tempted to make a diversion to Fairfax House for their exhibition: The Georgian Edit: Cutting Edge Fashion of the Eighteenth Century. I’m guessing that this is a trip that should not be combined with a Christmas lunch.
Even if you aren’t going to be able to get to York before 31st December when the exhibition closes, the photos in the York Press articles are worth a look.
