Style and Sensibility: Regency Fashion exhibition

Step out in style with a new exhibition showcasing the best of Regency fashion.

Inspired by the fashions of Jane Austen's novels like Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, this exhibition features original gorgeous Georgian dresses, fabulous fans and wonderful waistcoats.

This is a show about fashion, costume and style.  Think Lizzy Bennet and Mr Darcy for the classic clothes of the early 1800s, then be shocked by the extravagant styles of the 1830s.  You can also discover the colonial connections threaded through fabrics with links like African slavery and Indian cotton.

The exhibition features costume, accessories and archive material that show the dramatic wardrobe changes from the 1800s - 1830s, all in the period rooms of Lancaster's oldest town house.

Thanks to Harris Museum & Art Gallery and Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust, Carlisle and Judges' Lodgings Museum Trust for supporting this exhibition.
