We will look at styles from hats to heels, and from unmentionables to the gaudiest outer layers, to get a sense of everyday fashion for noblewomen, peasants, and everyone in between. Medieval paintings, sculptures, and tapestries will guide our eye, especially examples from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
