Pascale Gorguet Ballesteros
Sorbonne Université

The Cost of French Women’s Fashion, 1770’s-1780’s.
This lunchtime talk by Pascale Gorguet Ballesteros will focus on the fashion consumption of certain aristocratic women of the 1770s. It will be an attempt to nourish a little more the material culture of the Age of Enlightenment, relying on approaches linked to the history of art, the history of fashion, and objects.

Responsible for the nineteenth-century collections at Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, Pascale Gorguet Ballesteros has curated several exhibitions including Fastes de cours et cérémonies royales in 2009 at the castle of Versailles and L’art de paraître au 18e siècle at Nantes and Dijon Fine Arts Museums in 2021 and 2022. She teaches fashion history and fashion materials at Sorbonne Université. Her next exhibition will deal with women, travels, art, and fashion in the Enlightenment.

Tuesday, April 2, 12:15 pm
38 West 86th Street, Lecture Hall

Lunch will be served starting at noon. Registration required.
