Chatsworth has been home to the Cavendish family and the hereditary dukes of Devonshire since the original Elizabethan house was built on the site purchased by Sir William Cavendish in 1549. A famous historic house in England, Chatsworth is renowned as much for its fashionable history its majestic dresses and tiaras, its magnificent lace and splendid uniforms as its unrivalled collection of art, its palatial gardens, and its celebrated family dynasty. House Style takes the reader through images of show-stopping ensembles by the most celebrated designers of the day, from the Victorian era s Jean Philippe Worth to Alexander McQueen, and also features historic examples of ceremonial, military, court costume, fancy dress, and estate liveries, as well as clothing worn by members of the family to ride, hunt, shoot, and fish. New images of the rare surviving garments and gorgeous contemporary photographs are accompanied by new essays from leading historians and fashion critics. An exclusive invitation into the glamorous world of Chatsworth, this book is a true collectible for Anglophiles, fashion-history aficionados, and those fascinated by aristocratic style.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For Duchess of Devonshire fans (and fans of the Mitford and Cavendish families) this witty and very insider book follows the heirs of the dukedom for five centuries. And it's chic and a bit eccentric, just like the entire family tree."
--
The Style Saloniste

"Six years in the making, "House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth" is a close-up of the aristocratic family over five centuries through the lens of their lifestyle -- their fashion, uniforms, jewels, parties, art collections, traditions and love of the natural world."
--Women's Wear Daily

"As the ancestral home to the dukes of Devonshire since 1549, historic English estate Chatsworth has served as the real-time runway for fashions through the ages. For House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth ($60, Rizzoli), Hamish Bowles edits a rare glimpse into the estate's glamorous lineage."
