- Westminster Arts Reference Library

Getting your kit off, 18th Century Style
By the early 18th century London was the largest city in Europe and the capital of a growing empire around the world. Its wealth spawned a new middle class, hungering for pleasure, entertainment, elegance, society, sensuality - and fashion. Join Georgian Historians MIKE RENDELL and as they uncover the secrets of the Georgian closet and the extraordinary habits of Georgian ladies - both respectable and scandalous.
MIKE RENDELL will tell tales of ‘The Courtesan as Fashion icon' and 'the New Female Coterie’ - the group of rich women ostracised by polite society who would meet to drink and gossip at a high-end London brothel and who were headed by Caroline, Countess of Harrington, notorious for her insatiable appetite and sexual proclivities
TINA BAXTER ('Miss B.’) will provide us with a brief fumble under and around the fashion of the 18th century from top to toe, up do's with loyal mottoes, bum rolls, stays and stockings, plus the frivolity and frills in between. Apparently, dressing as a Georgian in the 21st century is not as difficult as it may seem without a maid, a footman and a carriage as will revealed by Miss B in full costume on the night.
