Behind the Scenes

29 January 2011 - 2 January 2017

Historic fashions from the time of Jane Austen to the First World War were presented in ‘Behind the Scenes’, a gallery display with a difference. A century of fashions for women, from delicate white muslin Regency dresses to a khaki drill uniform worn for war work, were all on view set against a backdrop of the stored collection giving a rare ‘behind the scenes’ glimpse into the Fashion Museum’s extensive archives.
