“With over 120 exhibits from the Renaissance to the present day The Vulgar explores changing notions of acceptable taste. For example, an ostentatious 18th century court mantua featuring gigantic overskirts are displayed alongside John Galliano’s risqué interpretations of Holbeinesque nobility, demonstrating that extravagant exhibitionism has always remained at the heart of couture, whether at court or on the catwalk.”
