Talk | Fashioning an Empire

Presented by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Hear from Dr. Aimee Marcereau DeGalan, Senior Curator of European Arts at the Nelson-Atkins, how Napoleon harnessed fashion not only to bolster the French economy, but also to legitimize his reign. During the Napoleonic era, the clothing of men, women and children acquired a social, cultural, and economic importance that it never before had in the history of the Western world.
