Unexpected Elegance: Female Fashion from the 1970s

1 September 2017 - 1 July 2019

Costume Gallery

The 1970s are often called ‘the decade that taste forgot’, but the dresses in this small exhibition show that this was far from true. From minis to midis and maxis, in fabrics ranging from cotton and corduroy to polyester and fake leopard-skin, with designs by Ossie Clark, Givenchy and Zandra Rhodes, we celebrate some of the more subtle pleasures of 1970s fashion.
