Adventures in Costume
1 – 15 May 2021
Grantown Museum presents an exhibition of its’ collection of reproduction costumes covering the period from the 1750’s to the 1920’s. Most costumes are recreations of, or inspired by, period costumes seen on TV and in film – Outlander, Downton Abbey, Pride & Prejudice, Young Victoria, The Duchess, Marie Antoinette.
We even have a reproduction of the Isabella MacTavish Fraser wedding gown held by Inverness Museum – except ours is made up in Clan Grant tartan (of course!)
There are 20 costumes in all, which have been made in silk, wool, linen & cotton – in creating the costumes we have tried to be as authentic as possible (except for boning – we used modern polyester, not whalebone).
You can even try on the costumes – grown up dressing up!
