Dressed for Drama - Worcester Cathedral
Come and step into a world of beauty and detail . . . that is exactly how I felt when I went to go and explore the costumes at the 'Dressed for Drama' exhibition.
My background is costume and it was lovely to go and have a wonder back through garments that made me passionate about what I do today. I was always told I was to costume for fashion and to fashion for costume !!! (This is how I have ended up in bridal and occasion wear I do believe as there is the beauty of both)
But looking at these wonderful costumes that bring shows to life it made me realise bridal, evening, prom and occasion wear take so much from costume and the past. I am a lover of fashion history and would have loved to be in the ages where you had to dress up like a princess every day! I know today this would be very impractical and I am sure getting in and out of the car would be a nightmare but I do wonder sometimes how fabulous it would be.
Without further or do I want to share some images I took to show you just how much we take from history and how costume helps to bring these beautiful times back to life.
