New Topics – From Downton to Gatsby: Jewelry and Fashion from 1890-1929
January 23 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Featuring Andrew Prince, jewelry designer and craftsman.
In 2012, Andrew Prince was commissioned by the creators of “Downton Abbey” to create a large collection of tiaras, combs, earrings and necklaces adorned by the main characters.
Additionally, his commissions include jewelry for Michael Jackson, Shirley Bassey, Dame Judy Dench in “Mrs. Henderson Presents,” and for the film “The Young Victoria.” A frequent lecturer at the Victoria and Albert Museum and throughout the U.S., his in-depth knowledge of jewelry, fashion history, and historical portraits combine together to give a broad contextual view of these fascinating subjects.
Andrew will discuss the extraordinary period between 1890 and 1929 where the great couturiers collaborated with the finest of jewelers to produce jewels of outstanding quality and opulence.
