The exhibition explores the depiction of beauty, style and fashion using a superb selection of original drawings, paintings, gowns and fashion accessories. It opens a unique window on this influential period using international artworks overflowing with elegance and humour. A 1920s-style evening dress made for Joanna Lumley for a stage role, is just one of the beautiful items on display.

By buying one of these superb fashion items, drawings or paintings, you will be helping our wonderful museum to thrive. And, yes, the Lumley dress is for sale!
