‘Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen’ talk at Toitu Otago Settlers Museum

Dr Jane Malthus shared her pearls of wisdom about the psychology of colour, why the quality of 19th Century garments is so incredible and why purple/indigo is worn by the wealthy only – there is no synthetic form of it. She took us on a journey through fashion history: from the creation of dyes to the application of colour blocking. She also explains why blue and green should never be seen. Her reason was not based on fashion snobbery but because they clash on the colour wheel!
