“A Journey through the Imperial Wardrobe”
A talk by David Rosier

David provides explanations for the more common design themes from dragon imagery to the use of images from nature.

In particular he focuses on the highly decorative clothing of high ranking Chinese Ladies and considers the design of items such as collars, skirt and sleeve panels. In addition he reviews dress accessories and includes items attached to robe belts (purses, fragrance pouches, fan cases), hats and kingfisher feather jewellery

This talk was given at the society's meeting on 15th December 2014.
