End Date 2019
Venue Beck Isle Museum
Location Pickering, North Yorkshire, UK.
Exhibition display of dressed mannequin in Victorian dress

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!
