Synopsis

High Fashion in Stuart Times A Study of Period Costume with Pull-up Scenes by Andrew Brownfoot

Covering the period from the 1630s to the 1690s, this book continues the style of the other two in the series. It follows the fortunes of a fashionable family through three generations. Clothes were vital to their success and in their diaries we gain an insight into the pleasures and problems of fashionable life during such troublesome times. Lucy Townsend writes about the lavish entertainments given in honour of Charles I. Her son comments on the Battle of Edgehill and her grandson deals with the after effects of the Great Fire of London. Never the main actors, the Townsends record their reactions to events played out before them and so let us see the concerns, preoccupations and clothes of the world of high fashion in the Stuart period.
