Artistic Dress

Transgressive Fashion in the Victorian Era

Fashioning the Artist

With all best intentions, I keep failing to update this blog. Truthfully, my job has largely pulled me in another direction, and all my energy is focused on research around the Mackintosh Restoration Project, as a consequence of the 2014 fire. However, in the midst of this, the embargo came off my PhD thesis, Fashioning the Artist: Artistic Dress in Victorian Britain 1848-1900, and so I thought I’d go ahead and provide a link to where it can be dowloaded, here: 

It needs a lot of editing, and I do hope to turn it into a book when the dust settles on current projects. Meanwhile I still try and get out to teach and talk about Artistic Dress wherever I can. Please do contact me if you ever want to know more.
