About Author

Alice Vansittart Strettel Carr

Alice Vansittart Strettel Carr was a British costume designer whose work is linked to the Aesthetic clothing movement. Alice Vansittart Strettell was the daughter of Laura Vansittart Neale and the Reverend Alfred Baker Strettell, a British consular chaplain in Genoa, Italy, and later the rector of St. Martin's Church in Canterbury. Her sister Alma was a writer and translator. In 1873, Alice married J. Comyns Carr, a drama and art critic, novelist, writer, and director of the Grosvenor Gallery. They had three children: Philip, Dorothy, and Arthur, who later became a member of parliament. As a costume designer, Carr was linked with the Aesthetic dress movement, which championed looser, more flowing gowns with theatrical embellishments like lace and embroidery. It was said that she was the inspiration for the comic persona "Mrs Cimabue Brown" created by cartoonist George du Maurier to lampoon the Aestheticists in several of his Punch magazine illustrations. Carr, who succeeded Patience Harris as Ellen Terry's chief costume designer, worked for two decades. Carr authored a fashion analysis for The Woman's World magazine in 1850, following Oscar Wilde's appointment as editor. Carr published a collection of memories in 1926.
