Visitors will have a rare opportunity to view beautifully crafted gowns from a hand-knitted, silk wool dress taken from a 1930s pattern to a complete ‘Wizard of Oz’ themed ensemble from 2013.

We will also be hosting a stunning collection of handmade bridal gowns, worn by stars of major screen productions. These most romantic and glamorous dresses are from Cosprop, the world’s leading costumier to film, television and theatre.
