Description

By the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Laura Burlington, and Hamish Bowles

Chatsworth has been home to the Cavendish family and the hereditary dukes of Devonshire since the original Elizabethan house was built on the site purchased by Sir William Cavendish in 1549. A famous historic house in England, Chatsworth is renowned as much for its fashionable historyits majestic dresses and tiaras, its magnificent lace and splendid uniformsas its unrivaled collection of art, its palatial gardens, and its celebrated family dynasty.

House Style takes the reader through images of show-stopping ensembles by the most celebrated designers of the day, from the Victorian era's Jean-Philippe Worth to Alexander McQueen. It features historic examples of ceremonial, military, court costume, fancy dress, and estate liveries as well as clothing worn by members of the family to ride, hunt, shoot, and fish. New images of rare surviving garments and gorgeous contemporary photographs accompany essays from leading historians and fashion critics. An exclusive invitation into the glamorous world of Chatsworth, this book is a true collectible for Anglophiles, fashion- history aficionados, and those fascinated by aristocratic style.
