Fashion & Beauty
The Fashion Museum is the finest museum in the world dedicated to the study of fashionable dress. It was founded by Bath City Council in 1963, following a substantial donation of historical fashionable dress by the eminent costume designer and collector Doris Langley Moore. Originally known as the Museum of Costume, the name changed to the Fashion Museum in 2007. This audioguide offers a tour around the Museum’s displays of corsets, crinolines, daywear, eveningwear and underwear and includes items and interviews from four important British designers of the 1970s and 1980s: John Bates, Janice Wainwright, Wendy Dagworthy and knitwear designer Sarah Dallas.
