In the video below, designer Gareth Pugh talks about the fashions of the Tudors and Stuarts. Filmed at his London studio, the young British designer tells Royal Collection exhibition curator, Anna Reynolds, how he takes inspiration from a period when fashion was used to convey power and status in a competitive and novelty-seeking royal court.
