The Anne Hopkinson Study Day Friday with the Arts Society Dukeries 12 April 2019  £28.00 per person including tea and coffee THE CHANGING FACE OF FASHION AND JEWELLERY From Downton to Gatsby and the Glamour Years Venue: The Civic Centre, Carlton in Lindrick S81 9AP For the series Downton Abbey, Andrew was commissioned to produce many jewels for the main characters, and this inspired him to create a talk based on Downton and the changing styles of the time portrayed. Jewellery and Fashion are often seen as two entirely separate and distinct fields of design, but this is very far from the case. In his talk Andrew Prince guides you through the extraordinary periods and events between 1890 and 1929, where the great fashion houses collaborated with the finest of jewellers to produce works of art of outstanding quality and glittering opulence. Along with this he discusses the clients and patrons who commissioned the jewels and how they were worn with the sumptuous gowns. To accompany his study day, he brings with him many of the pieces used in Downton, so the audience can see what was worn, close up.
