Debutantes and the London Season
Wed January 11th 2017
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
"Enjoy an afternoon of Jazz Age beauty, glamour and fashion as we present a roll call of the 1920s debutantes perfectly preserved by the Mary Evans Picture Library.
Until the middle of the last century, London’s social calendar was dominated by ‘the Season’, a round of social events and parties during which the daughters of the upper classes made their ‘debuts’. Debutantes and their families descended on the capital from all over Britain to take part in this elaborate process that in its blend of glamour, archaic and sometimes comic ritual is emblematic of a world now lost. From the preparations and formalities of court presentation to the exhausting round of parties that followed, Luci Gosling provides a detailed look at a phenomenon that was central to the lives of generations of privileged young ladies."
