Stephen Jones : from Georgiana to Boy George

Webb, Iain R [Curator] (2012) Stephen Jones : from Georgiana to Boy George. .


An exhibition at The Bowes Museum featuring a selection of hats designed by internationally acclaimed milliner Stephen Jones that reference the The Georgian era, which is a period he returns to again and again, especially the Regency. Jones is entranced by the elegance of neo-classical architecture, the romantic poets, fluttering plumes, bonnets and turbans. The hats were shown on early 20th Century wax mannequins by Pierre Imans loaned from the collection of Fashion Museum, Bath. The mannequins were displayed among objects selected from The Bowes Museum's extensive collection - information labels embroidered on antique table linen. The exhibit was displayed in the state of the art fashion gallery.
