Event Details

The Annual Conference of the Costume Society 

Pre-Raphaelites and the Arts and Crafts Movement

In celebration of the seven young friends who formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 and changed the face of British art forever, the 2019 conference theme and location is inspired by Birmingham Museums Trust extensive collection of Pre-Raphaelite art. In the midst of industry revolution and scientific discovery, both the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Arts and Craft Movement challenged the conventions of art and design. Opposing the artistic ideals presented by the Royal Academy, the Pre-Raphaelite movement was inspired by late medieval and early Renaissance works, presenting themes of love and death in almost photographic realism. Similarly, the Arts and Craft movement came about as a reaction against a decline of quality caused by industrialisation and improve the status of decorative arts. Parallels can be drawn between the two prominent artistic movements with their common aim to encourage craftsmanship, artistic flair and reaction against Victorian ideals. Both movements were interested in textiles and clothing and the relationship between dress and the body The Costume Society 2019 Conference aims to explore the relationship between art, design, costume and clothing and how these pivotal artistic movements influenced dress and textiles – and continues to do so.

This inspiring 3 day conference includes:

On Friday 5th July 2019 

  • A guided tour of the Pre-Raphaelite Collection at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery by an expert gallery curator
  • An informal get together at Bacchus Bar (drinks and bar food not included in ticket price).

  • At the Macdonald Burlington Hotel - 2 days of talks, keynote lectures and workshops led by some of the worlds most knowledgeable and influential fashion historians and costume professionals including; academics, makers, designers, curators and conservators
