Following the attendance-breaking success of EDG’s Dressing Downton and CUT! Costume and the Cinema, EDG presents Jane Austen: Fashion & Sensibility, the latest costume exhibition poised to drive the attendance of your devoted, historically-astute and fashion-loving demographic.
For the past two hundred years, the novels of Jane Austen have been read, studied, and cherished by millions of readers around the world, with many of the most-beloved gracing the silver screen in the past century. Featuring 47 captivating costumes worn by actors including Gwyneth Paltrow, Colin Firth, Judy Dench, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Jonny Lee Miller, and more, the exhibition will transport visitors back to the Regency period to rediscover the drama and romance of these timeless novels. Drawn from the collection of Oscar and BAFTA-award winning London costumier Cosprop Ltd., these stunning costumes frame the exhibition’s powerful themes of class, gender, and character dynamics in Austen’s world and provide visitors the unforgettable opportunity to view the costumes of some of their favorite Hollywood actors up close.
