Social Fabric

On exhibition

28 February 2023 - 15 July 2023

Social fabric

Social Fabric displays some of the Museum's never before seen clothing collection. Each garment tells a surprising and unexpected story. Drag queen gowns, mermaid costumes, military uniforms and lacy corsets all chronicle the social history of fashion and dressmaking in the Tweed. From the luxurious to the humble, these textiles weave together the Tweed's social fabric, telling stories of who we are, and how they have shaped our identity.

The exhibition features "The Dressing Room", an interactive space that allows visitors to explore, and wear, a collection of real vintage fashion from the 1940s to the 1990s.

We will have a range of public programs, activities, tours and workshops for all ages exploring themes in the exhibition to experience!
