For the Tudor and Stuart elite, luxurious clothing was an essential component of court life. Garments and accessories – and the way in which they were worn – conveyed important messages about wealth, gender, age, social position, marital status and religion.

Through the evidence of portraiture, In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion traces changing tastes in fashionable attire in Great Britain in the 16th and 17th centuries. Using paintings, drawings and miniatures from the Royal Collection, and a number of rare surviving examples of clothing and accessories, it explores the style of the rich and famous of the Tudor and Stuart periods.
