‘New Donations with Vintage Style’ is the new costume display at Henfield Museum, featuring costume from the 1920s, 1940s and 1960s.
This new display at the museum is open now and ends March 2024.
The case contains a collection of recent donations to the museum costume stock. Exhibits range from a graceful evening gown to a sturdy woollen overcoat with a long story and two trips across the Atlantic in its history.
To accompany the clothes, we have a wonderful display of photographs of the owners and wearers of the majority of the items. So you can see what the wedding dress, coat and baby's dress all looked like on the owners.
