Fashion on the Ration

Fashion on the Ration

An exhibition open until 1 May 2017 at The Imperial War Museum North in Manchester

From 'onesies' to wear in the air raid shelter to jewellery created from aeroplane parts, Fashion on the Ration looks at how fashion survived and even flourished under the strict rules of rationing in 1940s Britain, often in new and unexpected ways.

This exhibition explores how men and women found new ways to dress as clothes rationing took hold. Displays of original clothes from the era, including military uniforms and functional fashion, reveal what life was really like on the home front in wartime Britain.

VICTORIA: a costume exhibition

VICTORIA: a costume exhibition

Harewood House

24 March - 29 October 2017

Harewood House was recently used as a major set for ITV’s Victoria series. The crew filmed across Yorkshire for several months during winter 2015/16. Harewood was fortunate enough to be one of their key locations.

To celebrate the success of the programme, the opulent rooms on Harewood’s State Floor will come to life with costumes from the programme. Outfits worn by Jenna Coleman who plays Queen Victoria will be displayed throughout the 2017 season. Alongside the costumes, the exhibition will present a behind the scenes look at filming in a grand House like Harewood. Learn how the team prepare and manage the house and discover how rooms are transformed into sets.
