F R C DISPATCH – Back To School

WELCOME BACK, FASHION ENTHUSIASTS!

Fashion historian Laurent Cotta tells us about “power dressing” in Paris in the 1800s while exploring an exhibition first staged at the Palais Galliera in Paris and now opening at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

Laurent Cotta: Proust’s Muse, The Countess Greffulhe


Élisabeth de Caraman-Chimay, the Countess Greffulhe (1860—1952), was a famous beauty celebrated for her “aristocratic and artistic elegance,” and the inspiration for the character Oriane, Duchess of Guermantes in Marcel Proust’s epic work, In Search of Lost Time. A pioneering fund-raiser, the countess was a major supporter of the Ballets Russes and her exceptional haute-couture collection included dresses signed Fortuny, Lanvin, Poiret, and Worth.

Since 2002, Cotta has been responsible for contemporary creation at Musée Galliéra, the foremost museum of fashion in Paris.

Deirdre Murphy: Gilded Butterflies: Fashion at the English Court


Royalty, courtiers and guests at the British court have always worn the best clothing money could buy. This illustrated talk by Historic Royal Palaces Senior Curator Deirdre Murphy will explore how opulent materials, intricate embellishments, extreme silhouettes and exclusive, custom-made garments have distinguished the court from everyone else for centuries.

Many generations have used royal and court dress as a powerful communication tool. The perpetual tension between tradition and modernity have worked to add gravitas to grand ceremonial spectacles played out on the world’s stage. Examples of royal portraiture and surviving garmnets in the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection will demonstrate how courtiers and individuals from the 10th century onward used clothes to communicate power, wealth, status, national identity and empathy with others.

As curator at Historic Royal Palaces, Deirdre Murphy has special responsibility for the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection and for curating exhibitions and displays at Kensington Palace.
