EG THREAD TALKS: Ninya Mikhaila : For comlynesse only

For comlynesse only: Decorative embellishment and sumptuary legislation during the reign of Elizabeth I:
Tudor portraits and extant survivals provide much evidence of the Elizabethan taste for richly embellished garments and personal items. However, the silk materials, gold and silver thread, lace and embroidery which were often used for these designs all fell within the restrictions laid out by the various acts of apparel issued by Queen Elizabeth. In this talk, which draws on research carried out for the latest publication from The Tudor Tailor - The Typical Tudor , Ninya will share insights into the options for decorative detailing in clothes and accessories available to ordinary people in the late 16th century.
Ninya Mikhaila established her business making reconstructions of historic costumes for museums and heritage sites in 1994 after gaining a Higher National Diploma in Costume Interpretation at the London College of Fashion. Her clients include Historic Royal Palaces, The Royal Armouries, The National Trust, English Heritage, The National Archives and Gainsborough’s House. Ninya featured in the six-part BBC television series   A Stitch in Time , which demonstrated what reconstructing historical clothing can tell us about people in the past. Ninya is one half of The Tudor Tailor, a company specialising in reconstructing, and publishing material on 16th century dress.
