The beauty of the natural world has long inspired design and this exhibition has glorious examples of how fashion has used and embraced the power of flowers. Many hidden gems from Southend‟s costume collection will be on display; highlights include stunning, hand embroidered, 18th century gentlemen’s waistcoats and 1950s floral bathing suits from our extensive collection – all works of art in the form of fashion.
