Showcasing gems from Birmingham’s costume collection Dressed to the Nines opens on Saturday 7 December. Whether you’re off to a formal do or a night out on the town with friends, clothes play an important part in special occasions. These clothes might only ever be worn once or twice. They can become treasured possessions and reminders of the occasion they were worn for. This display is about dressing up and going out from 1850 to the present day. Displaying a selection of garments, accessories and works of art, many of which have never been on display before, the exhibition explores some of the changes in clothing over time. Expect dazzling shoes and impressive attire!
