During the Qing Dynasty, all aspects of court attire followed strict guidelines, laid out by the emperor. There were clear rules on what to wear on different occasions, what color you wore, and what designs could be worn. This talk by Associate Curator Rachael Holstege will look at several imperial robes in the FIA’s collection, including two that are currently on view in the Arts of Asia gallery.
