|Description||Go behind the scenes and see the Fashion Museum's outstanding collection of historical fashionable dress. Collection Stories is an exciting new look behind the scenes of the Fashion Museum's outstanding collection of historical fashionable dress. There are hundreds of fascinating individual fashion stories and visitors are invited into the Museum's boxed 19th century collection to uncover some of these hidden narratives. From shoes and bonnets to lace and wedding dresses, the treasured pieces specially selected for display amongst the rails and storage boxes hint at the astonishing size and depth of the Fashion Museum collection, and exploring them in detail offers an opportunity to discover more about the people who wore them, the people who collected them and what they tell us about the history of fashionable dress. The Collection Stories gallery will also showcase a special space for regularly changing displays called Fashion Focus. The first display opening in May 2019 will be Little and Large; a glimpse of the Fashion Museum's enchanting collection of antique dolls displayed alongside beautiful life size fashions from the same historical period.
