Monday Lecture – 17th Feb, Dr Rebecca Mitchell: Victorian Mourning Dress

February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

For Victorian widows, mourning could be a full time job. Strict rules dictated what one could wear and where one could go in the weeks and months following a bereavement. But the Victorians also made a lively business out of mourning dress, as emporiums sprung up, offering the latest fashions and fads in appropriately sorrowful shades of black and purple. Join us for a talk that explores both sides of Victorian mourning dress: the sadness and the style.
