Reconstructing the Veil

In this post we present a one-minute film made by Joe Briffa during the Unwrapping an Icon Dress and Jewellery Workshop at the V&A in February this year. In it Hilary Davidson, a fashion historian and curator from the University of Sydney, gives her interpretation of the veil depicted in the portrait of the Lady in a Fur Wrap. This she does by making her own version of the veil and then personally embodying it. A longer version of the film will be available at a later date.
