The Fashion Museum is a world-class collection of historic fashionable dress.

There are almost 100,000 objects in the Fashion Museum collection, ranging from decorated gloves from the time of Shakespeare to fashions by today’s leading designers in the Dress of the Year collection. These precious objects, all showing different aspects of the history of fashion, have (for the most part) been given to the museum by many generous individuals and organisations during the 50 plus years that the Fashion Museum has been in Bath.
