Six Decades of Victorian Fashion
Come with us on a journey through Queen Victoria’s reign, told by the fashions of the decades. Crinolines and bustles come and go – and come back again! Caps and bonnets frame the face with lace and ribbons, and ladies’ hands stay warm with mittens and muffs. Spare a thought too for the maids who washed, starched, dried and ironed the layers of petticoats and undergarments needed to create the silhouettes demanded by fashion. A must see!
