is one of my favourite museums,and I’m off to visit it again in the summer…Hurrah!!!


Set in the magnificent Upper Rooms,a place Jane Austen and her characters knew very, very well, they  have a vibrant attitude, and they concentrate on all aspects of fashion, not just the past, though its early 19th century collection is unrivalled, in my humble opinion.

A forthcoming exhibit is Princes Diana’s Dresses:,whose death sparked similar responses to when Princess Charlotte died. As I saw her wedding dress when it toured the country after THE wedding of the year in 1981,I am looking forward to seeing these.

Here is a link to a small but funky  video which gives you a very good idea of what is on offer there- my personal favourite , the gloves collection features nicely!

Enjoy!
