Does the man make the clothes or the clothes make the man?
The Bard Graduate Center is exploring this question and hope you can join them for an evening of presentation and exchange. Costume curators Kate Irvin and Laurie Anne Brewer take us back to the days of King George III and the world of English elegance and extravagance. The fascinating world of the early modern dandy is revealed through extreme transformations of form, fashion, and of the male silhouette.
