• Heavenly - Vintage Dress Exhibition

Overview

The 'Heavenly' exhibition celebrates fashion and ephemera from life's great occasions from around the globe. From the high Victorian era through to the 1970's, this exhibition traces the history of special occasion fashion from the strapped up Edwardians, the simplicity of the roaring 20's, the sleek lines of the 1930's, the austerity of the war years and beyond into the reemergence of luxury through the 60's and 70's. With full provenance documented for many of the items in this exhibition, it is as much about social history as it is about fashion.
