The NGV is offering free entry to tertiary students to an interesting talk on this Sunday:
This lecture explores a range of men’s dress cultures, from the rake to the macaroni; from the servant to the courtier; from the Incroyable to the Revolutionary street gangs called the jeunesse dorée (gilded youth) and the muscadins, who retained aspects of court dress as an affront to the authorities and the sans-culottes.
Presented by Peter McNeil, Professor Design History, University of Technology, Sydney. More information at the website.
