• House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth

    Nov 18th, 2017
    10:30am - 11:30am
    Included with museum admission/Free Brooks Membership.

    A DECORATIVE ARTS TRUST EVENT

    Lady Burlington, Countess of Burlington, began her professional career as an international fashion model. She is a former fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and has been a member of the British Fashion Council since 2010. Married to the aristocratic photographer Bill Burlington, her search for a christening gown for her newborn son led her to rummage through the families' textile collection at Chatsworth. This search, with her mother-in-law the Duchess of Devonshire, not only resulted in the selection of a christening gown, but was also the impetus for a groundbreaking exhibition at Chatsworth showcasing five centuries of historic costumes and fashions worn by the Cavendish family.

    Lady Burlington will lead us through some of the family collection, showing images of drawings, paintings and photographs in the Chatsworth collection, as well as archival examples of dresses and accessories—including costumes of Jean-Philippe Worth and Alexander McQueen.
