The Wars of the Roses

These pictures show a selection of my work from the past twenty years. As far as possible I have only featured individuals who have given their informed consent; if you appear here and would rather not, please contact me to have the picture removed.

The late medieval clothing of the 1460's and 1470's exploited the fourteenth-century fit for inner garments (doublets, hose and kirtles) while developing the sculptural qualities of broadcloth on the outer gowns. Appropriate headgear and accessories make each individual's social position absolutely clear.
