I’ve just discovered the Silk Museums Trust, and will be back with more news from them later. Here’s an upcoming event in April for those interested in costume
Silk: 200 years of Silk Fashion
Saturday 5th April 2014
Lucy Adlington from the History Wardrobe will be putting on a one off costume event exploring the stories of the women who wove, sewed and wore silk. It will feature a selection of real and replica outfits, some which have never before been shown at History Wardrobe events.
This is a one off event, and promises to be a fascinating afternoon.
Start time 12.30pm
Tickets £10/£8 members of the Friends.
