Emily's thesis builds on her previous practical experience in Fashion Design and MA in Art History. This delves into Catherine de Medici’s strategic use of dress; examining the interplay between fashion, portraiture, and identity. Her research explores the intricate ways in which clothing was employed as a tool of power and self-expression during the sixteenth century. This explores the nuanced narratives embedded within the textiles and objects of adornment throughout Catherine’s life at the French royal court; focusing on the role of sartorial choices in shaping societal perceptions and individual identities.
