Captivating Costume: Three Centuries of Fashion

Opening 1 February 2022

A fabulous tour through three centuries of fashion.    Worcester Museums Costume 04

From the extravagant 18th century frocks of the Georgian era to the crinolines of Queen Victoria’s reign, and from body-restricting corsets of the early 20th century to the miniskirts of the 1960s, fashion has forever reflected change in society. Sashay through three centuries of fabulous costume and find out how Worcestershire influenced fashions: supplying beautiful gloves across the globe and revolutionising fashion consumption in the home.

The tour concludes in the 21st century with Ginny Lemon’s wonderful Queen of my Hometown costume from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
