A must-see for every fashion-lover, the Fashion Museum is home to one of the world’s leading collections of historic and fashionable dress. Here you can see everything from sumptuous Georgian gowns to spectacular outfits by some of today’s top designers.
The museum is housed in the Assembly Rooms, Bath’s most magnificent Georgian building, where guests used to gather to dance, drink tea, play cards and listen to music. Entry to the Assembly Rooms is included in the Fashion Museum ticket.
A History of Fashion in 100 Objects, a major new exhibition celebrating fashion from the 1600s to the present day has recently opened at the Fashion Museum, Bath. Showcasing 100 star objects drawn from the Fashion Museum’s world-class collection, the brand new displays give visitors an instant insight into the era-defining outfits and headline pieces that have shaped our wardrobes over the past 400 years.
Fashion touches everyone’s life – it is intrinsically linked to society – and A History of Fashion in 100 Objects references moments in history, as well as more personal stories. Graceful silk robes and embroidered and tailored coats for men, the styles fashionable during Bath’s Georgian heyday are on show, along with Regency fashion from the time of Jane Austen and dresses by the big names of fashion history, including the House of Worth and Christian Dior.
The exhibition also includes ten shoe ‘moments’ throughout history, from Georgian silk shoes to Nike Air trainers as well as a children’s trail featuring ten ‘historical fashion’ looks for kids, from the 1700s to the 2000s.
The exhibition will be on display until 1 January 2018.
Discover what it is like to wear a ‘make-believe’ Georgian dress and more! There are coats and hats, dresses and bonnets for boys and for girls, and for men and for women, all just waiting for you to try on. Take your photographs against a backdrop image of Bath's Royal Crescent.
Plus, look out for an exciting range of fashion-themed talks and events for all ages.
