Kate Strasdin, "Inside the Royal Wardrobe: A Dress History of Queen Alexandra "
English | ISBN: 1350102342 | 2019 | 192 pages | EPUB | 7 MB
Queen Alexandra used clothes to fashion images of herself as a wife, a mother and a royal: a woman who both led Britain alongside her husband Edward VII and lived her life through fashion. Inside the Royal Wardrobeoverturns the popular portrait of a vapid and neglected queen, examining the surviving garments of Alexandra, Princess of Wales – who later became Queen Consort – to unlock a rich tapestry of royal dress and society in the second half of the 19th century.
