Fashion and Dandyism

APRIL 2022 – MAY 2022/MARY ALLICE GALLERY

At the turn of the 19th century, dandyism was a new fashion trend amongst the upper class in the United Kingdom and France. The three ensembles in this exhibition reflect dandyism fashion philosophies and the continued influence from George “Beau” Brummell (1778-1840), an English gentlemen who is frequently referred to as the father of dandyism, the Industrial Revolution, and of course many other influences on fashion, style, and dress.
