Spotlight Series

Fashion Icons of the Spanish Renaissance

doc. Ing. Martina Hřibová, Ph. D.
May 13, 2024, from 16:00
Charles Bridge Room (ground floor), Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle

What fashion trends were popular in the second half of the 16th century in the Czech lands? What was the relationship between Renaissance women and fashion? What was hidden under these costly gowns? We will look for answers to these and similar questions by looking at contemporary portraits of Polyxena and her sisters, Polyxena’s marriage correspondence, contemporary fashion books, and original surviving garments. 

Please note that this Spotlight talk will be held in Czech.

Free for Members of the Lobkowicz Collections. Visitors can attend the Spotlight
