Dress at the Court of King Henry VIII

Henry VIII used his wardrobe, and that of his family and household, as a way of expressing his wealth and magnificence. This book encompasses the first detailed study of male and female dress worn at the court of Henry VIII (1509-47) and covers the dress of the king and his immediate family, the royal household and the broader court circle. Henry VIII's wardrobe is set in context by a study of Henry VII's clothes, court and household. ~ ~ As none of Henry VIII's clothes survive, evidence is drawn primarily from the great wardrobe accounts, wardrobe warrants, and inventories, and is interpreted using evidence from narrative sources, paintings, drawings and a small selection of contemporary garments, mainly from European collections. ~ ~ Key areas for consideration include the king's personal wardrobe, how Henry VIII's queens used their clothes to define their status, the textiles provided for the pattern of royal coronations, marriages and funerals and the role of the great wardrobe, wardrobe of the robes and laundry. In addition there is information on the cut and construction of garments, materials and colours, dr given as gifts, the function of livery and the hierarchy of dress within the royal household, and the network of craftsmen working for the court. The text is accompanied by full transcripts of James Worsley's wardrobe books of 1516 and 1521 which provide a brief glimpse of the king's clothes.

A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion in the Renaissance

Spurred by an increasingly international and competitive market, the Renaissance saw the development of many new fabrics and the use of highly prized ingredients imported from the New World. In response to a thirst for the new, fashion's pace of change accelerated, the production of garments provided employment for an increasingly significant proportion of the working population, and entrepreneurial artisans began to transform even the most functional garments into fashionable ones. Anxieties concerning vanity and the power of clothing to mask identities heightened fears of fashion's corrupting influence, and heralded the great age of sumptuary legislation intended to police status and gender through dress. Drawing on sources from surviving garments to artworks to moralising pamphlets, this richly illustrated volume presents essays on textiles, production and distribution, the body, belief, gender and sexuality, status, ethnicity, and visual and literary representations to illustrate the diversity and cultural significance of dress and fashion in the period.

Elizabeth's Bedfellows

An Intimate History of the Queen's Court

Elizabeth I acceded to the throne in 1558, restoring the Protestant faith to England. At the heart of the new queen's court lay Elizabeth's bedchamber, closely guarded by the favoured women who helped her dress, looked after her jewels and shared her bed. Elizabeth's private life was of public, political concern. Her bedfellows were witnesses to the face and body beneath the make-up and elaborate clothes, as well as to rumoured illicit dalliances with such figures as Robert Dudley. Their presence was for security as well as propriety, as the kingdom was haunted by fears of assassination plots and other Catholic subterfuge. For such was the significance of the queen's body: it represented the very state itself. This riveting, revealing history of the politics of intimacy uncovers the feminized world of the Elizabethan court. Between the scandal and intrigue the women who attended the queen were the guardians of the truth about her health, chastity and fertility. Their stories offer extraordinary insight into the daily life of the Elizabethans, the fragility of royal favour and the price of disloyalty.

Die japanische Designerin Tomoko Nakamichi betrachtet Kleidungsstücke als Kunstwerke und stellt in Pattern Magic 3, ausgehend von der Dreiecks- und Wellenform, noch mehr extravagante und futuristische Schnittlösungen für professionelle Modedesigner vor. Ihre Oberteile wirken wie Origami-Objekte: Sie bauscht sie zu dreidimensionalen Vielecken auf, öffnet sie wie Blütenknospen an Rücken, Schulter oder Brust, lässt sie in spiralförmigen Volants auslaufen, setzt beutelartige Raffungen an Ärmel und Dekolleté oder schiebt die Schnittteile wie Puzzles ineinander. Auch das Spiel mit gegensätzlichen Farben nimmt sie auf, wenn sie Schnittteile in Schwarz und Weiß ineinander verzahnt und aufbrechende Formen farblich voneinander absetzt. Ihre Techniken erläutert sie Schritt für Schritt in Wort und Bild. Ergänzt wird das Buch mit Maßtabellen und einer Anleitung zur Konstruktion eines Oberteilgrundschnitts.
