La Belle Epoque at Peterborough


A small exhibition ‘La Belle Epoque’: Edwardian Fashion, 1900-1914, has recently opened at Peterborough Musuem. According to the curators “this exhibition is an absolute must for all lovers of fashion! Rarely seen items from the museum’s collection will be elegantly displayed to create a snapshot of Peterborough life before the Great War changed the city forever. Explore an iconic decade of changing silhouettes, elegant lines, tall starched collars and wide-brimmed hats”. The exhibition also “guest stars the wardrobe of the award winning ITV drama, Downton Abbey” and a ‘costume worn by Johnny Depp in Finding Neverland”.

The exhibition runs until the 6th May 2013.
