VAMFF ARTS PROGRAM 2019

PRETTY GENTLEMAN |Macaroni Men & The 18th Century Fashion World with Peter McNeil

Tuesday 5 March | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Well before bearded hipsters there were punks, rockers, peacocks - Regency dandies - and before them the macaronis.  Who were the 18th century macaronis and what did they really wear?  What happened in the streets of London when they began to appear? Why name a fashion trend after pasta?  In this lecture, Peter McNeil examines one of the most extreme moments of fashion history for men, and what it meant socially, politically and culturally.

Ticket $20 + $3.50 booking fee
