Vesta Tilley was a Music Hall Star who wore male clothing for her performances from the age of five years old.
She’s quoted as saying “I felt that I could express myself better if I were dressed as a boy.”
A meticulous Artiste Vesta rehearsed her Acts, perfecting every word and every gesture.
Throughout her luminous career Vesta emulated Dandies and Fops, so immaculately and impeccably that she actually became a Fashion Icon for Men !
Vesta made apparent Male foibles and exposed Male behaviours which made her enormously popular with Women too !
This Vesta Tilley Jago suit ensemble is cut with a silhouette for treading the boards and enjoying the Lime Light !
The Jacket is shaped with a flash cut away to a Dove Tail back. Styled with Art Deco inspired Cuffs and Pockets.
Offered here in Orange Houndtooth Cotton Linen.
