Join Assistant Curator Claire Allen-Johnstone for a talk about fashionable Victorian womenswear and those who turned against it, often looking to the past for inspiration. Performers including Ellen Terry – who dressed unconventionally both on and off stage – were among the fashion rebels of the day.
