    A major new project exploring the changing fashion trends of Renaissance Europe has been given the go-ahead after Queen Mary, University of London, secured a grant of nearly €1m from Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA).

    The three-year project, entitled ‘Fashioning the Early Modern: Creativity and Innovation in Europe, 1500-1800’, was launched in July 2010, and will be led by Professor Evelyn Welch, of the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary, in conjunction with the Victoria and Albert Museum.
