|Historical Fashions on Show|
|We began our
association in February 1996 at Heritage Showcase. Both of us had
a collection of a small number of historical costumes
that we were eager to show on live models, to dynamically
women's clothing in the past.
We collaborated on producing a fashion show of history at Heritage Showcase, Scarborough Town Centre Shopping Mall, with period music and commentary about history and how fashion evolves in response to historical events.
The format was successful. Audiences loved our nostalgic review of old fashions. Volunteer models had a thrilling experience wearing our costumes .
years we undertook to expand our
collections of costumes to demonstrate clothing fashions throughout
periods, to include accessories and undergarments, footwear, wigs and
millinery, and to include children's and men's costumes.
The format of our shows has changed little - only to improve our interpretation of history and to make our shows more colourful and educational.
Our collections now comprise over 90 complete costumes. Each show we produce is created specifically to fit with a theme chosen by the sponsoring organization's programme plan.
