About

The grandeur of Imperial Russia will be captured in this display of the dress and uniforms of Emperors and officials of the Russian court. Starting in the 1720s with the lavishly embroidered coats and elaborately patterned silk banyans from the wardrobe of Tsar Peter II, the display will span a period of almost two centuries. Garments on display will include coronation uniforms and regalia of Paul I, Alexander I, Nicholas I, Alexander II and Alexander III. Magnificence of the Tsars will explore the influences and crossovers between military uniform, court dress, European fashion and traditional Russian dress and will present the power and majesty of masculine uniform at its finest.
