Cotton Couture: 1950s Commissions from Manchester (Manchester Art Gallery)
Posted on July 30, 2015
I stumbled across this fabulous exhibition when I was researching a blog for Time Out Manchester. You may have read my Gallery of Costume Dior blog a couple of years ago – I’ve always wondered what’s in the vaults there and it turns out this is.
This exhibition runs until the end of August, and is all features dresses from the Catwalk as featured by the Cotton Board and many of them modelled by Barbara Goalen (swoon). If you live in, or are planning on visiting, Manchester go and see them before they get packed away again. These are fantastic pieces which your heart will melt over.
The exhibition is free, as is the rest of the Art Gallery (although donations are welcome).
