12 February - 31 December 2010. The Museum of Costume and Lace documents the female 'clothes revolution' of the 1960s.

The exhibition follows the liberation and freedom experienced by western women who suddenly enjoyed a form of emancipation through the radical changes in the fashion of the era, including the 'right' to wear trousers and mini skirts. Through a series of costumes and photographs, the museum traces the colour and optimism of the 60s.

Mon, Tue, Thurs, Fri: 10.00-12.30 & 13.30-17.00. Weekends: 14.00-17.00. Closed Wednesday.
