Note "Published on the occasion of the exhibition House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth, organised by and presented at Chatsworth, 25 March to 22 October 2017."--Colophon.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Chatsworth has been home to the Cavendish family and the hereditary dukes of Devonshire since the original Elizabethan house was built on the site purchased by Sir William Cavendish in 1549. A famous historic house in England, Chatsworth is renowned as much for its fashionable history, its majestic dresses and tiaras, its magnificent lace and splendid uniforms, as its unrivaled collection of art, its palatial gardens, and its celebrated family dynasty. House Style takes the reader through images of show-stopping ensembles by the most celebrated designers of the day, from the Victorian era's Jean-Philippe Worth to Alexander McQueen, and also features historic examples of ceremonial, military, court costume, fancy dress, and estate liveries, as well as clothing worn by members of the family to ride, hunt, shoot, and fish. New images of the rare surviving garments and gorgeous contemporary photographs are accompanied by new essays from leading historians and fashion critics. An exclusive invitation into the glamorous world of Chatsworth, this book is a true collectible for Anglophiles, fashion-history aficionados, and those fascinated by aristocratic style. Exhibition: Chatsworth House, Bakewell, UK (25.03. - 22.10.2017).
