Academic Dress - Fellows

The performer's style is based on the Cambridge bachelor's gown trimmed with gold cord on the open edge of the facing and open seam of the armhole, also a cord and button on the yoke. The festal style is based on the Oxford master's gown similarly trimmed with gold cord and button.

The Hoods are the full Glasgow shape. The body of the hood is in dark blue ribbed cotton viscose, fully lined and cape edged two inches with gold taffeta, the cowl edged three inches with cerise taffeta.
