Fashion and Freedom

The garments displayed reveal how women’s bodies were initially restricted by their clothing. The exhibition demonstrates that, over time, women began to be freed from the fetters of long, cumbersome skirts, tight, restrictive bodices, corsets and headwear. The display includes a small but important section on the history of the women’s suffrage movement. It also explores the fascinating stories of Elsie Duval and Olive Beamish, militant Suffragettes.
