Whenever in Bath, a visit to the Fashion Museum is a must. I have spent time in this museum in the past researching in their library and I have also called out many garments from their archives to study closely. Currently (2015) 'Georgians: Dress for Polite Society' is on exhibition. There was a sign up in the exhibition to say that photography without flash was welcomed and that they would appreciate seeing these images on the social media - an enlightened museum!
How I wish these gowns had not been installed behind glass because I would love to take close-up photographs of the Georgian embroidery.
I particularly love the Georgian Court Mantuas. They were cumbersome and disfiguring but they were great 'canvases' for artistic embroidery.
The Fashion Museum, for many decades, has featured 'Dress of the Year' They show the current 'Dress of the Year', as well as a few from past years.
Notice the boots - they are are constructed from twisted calico!
