Jane Austen: Fashion & Sensibility

Visitors can see costumes worn by actors such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Colin Firth, Dame Judi Dench, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Jonny Lee Miller, and more as they are transported back to Austen’s Regency England in order to relive the romance and drama of the classic tales. 

The costumes are drawn from the collection of Oscar and BAFTA-award winning London costumier, Cosprop Ltd. Through the medium of fashion, the exhibition explores Austen’s themes of class, gender and character dynamics.

Dressing the Abbey

Downton Abbey had viewers all across the globe gripped, with its stories of life in a fictional English country estate. The TV show explored the lives of both the aristocracy and the servants below stairs, and also showed the evolution of different fashions from 1912 to the mid-1920s.
