The Rest Is History

238. The Regency Revolution

The Rest Is History

How were the bonnets, corsets, and empire line dresses of the Regency period expressive of a revolutionary era?


In this episode, Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook are joined by Hilary Davidson to discuss fashion in early 19th century Britain. Diving into the world of Jane Austen, they look to understand how the unprecedented changes in style were driven by the social, cultural, and political changes of the time.
