From the Collections of the Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen
- Stunning presentation of an outstanding collection of national pre-eminence
- Fascinating overview of fashionable dress from sixteenth century to the present day
The Fashion Museum, located in Bath’s grand Assembly Rooms, is a world-class collection of contemporary and historical dress that is second to none. The Fashion Museum came to Bath as the Museum of Costume in 1963, and was the brainchild of Doris Langley Moore, an inspired collector, writer, scholar and costume designer who was passionate about fashions of the past. This souvenir book showcases treasures in the collection, from the beautiful embroidered pieces of the 17th century to the show-stopping ensembles from the world’s most famous fashion designers at the beginning of the 21st century. Beautifully designed and with expert commentary, it celebrates beautiful design and exquisite craftsmanship.
