The NGV is offering free entry to tertiary students to an interesting talk on this Sunday:
This lecture explores a range of menâ€™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 dorÃ©e (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.
