   Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times is currently at the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. Highlighting the fashion from one of the most widely watched television programs in the world, the traveling exhibition showcases nearly forty period costumes and jewelry from the hit series, Downton Abbey. The exhibit will traverse the nation after May 25th, with stops in Anaheim, South Bend, Cincinnati, Richmond, Chicago,  Oshkosh, and Nashville.  ELIZABETH McGOVERN ->

   Biltmore House, the exhibition’s premiere location, strikingly resembles Highclere Castle where the series is filmed, making it easy for guests to imagine how the Vanderbilts and their employees lived a century ago. Ranging from servants’ uniforms to lavish evening gowns, the award-winning costumes reflect how world events—the sinking of the Titanic and the evolving roles of women—influenced fashions.


   Set in the early twentieth century, Dressing Downton traces the events that uprooted British society on the eve of World War I and ushered in the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, and a new way of life. The exhibit highlights a time in British history when industry, fashion, and politics were changing drastically. This exhibition quickly filled its three-year tour, which says something about our obsession with all things Brit.


   This fine exhibition is designed and produced by Exhibits Development Group (EDG) in collaboration with NBC Universal International Television Production, the award-winning Cosprop LTD, London Museum, and Carnival Films/PBS.
