Design House Redfern

Not on view

John Redfern of the House of Redfern was a distinguished British tailor offering the finest garments to his clientele, his specialty being suits. The ensemble featured here is beautifully made and a close inspection of the coat shows its refined geometric piecing. The blouse is a tour de force of embroidery, obviously of Islamic influence and is the highlight of the ensemble.

Ensemble, Redfern (1847–1940), silk, wool, beads, metal, fur, French
