Utility in Wartime

Study Day and Visit

The Fashion Gallery, Snibston Discovery Museum

Saturday 20 April 2013, 10.30 - 16.00

Marking the 70th anniversary of the Board of Trade Collection, this exhibition at the Snibston Discovery Museum featured over 100 garments from the museum's collections and loans from other museums and private collections. The exhibition also included concept fashion created by the fashion students of De Montfort University, who have used the museum's collection of utility and other wartime fashion as the inspiration for their work.
