M&S Dressed in Time
Saturday 7 May
Our first vintage fashion show!
Our history is coming to life.... M&S Dressed in Time is an extra-special event, you'll have the chance to see outfits from the 1930s to present day brought to life on our own archive catwalk. Including glamorous 1930s leisure wear and cheerful 1950s prints, let our presenter take you through the fascinating story of fashion at M&S. We'll bring you right up to date with pieces from some of our most exciting current archive-inspired collections.
Fashion Show times:
The garments and accessories modelled on the catwalk are replica or vintage items from our handling collection. This collection has been created to be used for community outreach and engagement activities. The handling collection is separate from our core collection, which includes rare examples of vintage clothing. Items from our core collection are cared for and stored to professional archive standards at the M&S Company Archive building. Items from our core collection are not suitable to be worn on the catwalk, due to the risk of possible damage.
Have you got any M&S treasures tucked away that would add to our core or handling collections? We are always delighted to receive donations of M&S items of all ages. Please get in touch to talk about a possible donation.
Opening hours: 11am-3pm
