FASHION FANTASIES: FASHION PLATES AND FASHION SATIRE, 1775-1925
This display will juxtapose two genres of print that fantasise fashion on paper: fashion plates and graphic social satire. The fashion plate communicated changes in fashion but also encouraged viewers to engage with a luxurious fantasy. At the same time fashionable dress was subject to imaginative distortions in the hands of graphic satirists interested in exposing social foibles. From the oversize wigs of the 1770s to the short skirts and fur stoles of the 1920s, the display will chart the dialogue between fashion plate and fashion satire.
