This year the American Museum & Gardens is delighted to announce the arrival of its most glamorous exhibition yet, Night & Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs, organised by the Fashion and Textiles Museum, London. Presented thematically, the exhibition will take visitors on a journey through sumptuous city tableaus featuring a range of glamorous eveningwear. Nightclub, cinema and bustling street scenes are filled with floor-length gowns, created in satins, velvets and crepes and adorned with diamante.

From couture to classic, there is something for every fashionista. Not only will there be dresses and outfits galore, but also fabulous 1930s photography, which encapsulates the era. The visitor will be taken on a journey through the decade, passing art deco architecture, visiting wild parties and basking in the Golden Age of Hollywood.
