Join Olivia Fryman, co-author of Beauty, Sex and Power: A Story of Debauchery and Decadent Art at the Late Stuart Court (1660 – 1714) as she talks about court rules of fashion and etiquette, and how they were understood during the late 17th century. Court life was glamorous and lucrative, with access to the most important and wealthiest sources of patronage, titles and influence in the country. Yet it could also be a road to social, moral and financial ruin.
