Ceredigion Museum
Who, What, WEAR, When?
The changing silhouette and social role of women


“Fashion is born by small facts, trends, or even politics, never by trying to make pleats and furbelows, by clothes easy to copy, or by the shortening or lengthening of the skirt.”
Reflecting on this quote by Elsa Schiaparelli (1880 – 1973) this exhibition, centred on costumes from Ceredigion Museum, will explore the relationship between the role of women in society and the changing shape of their fashion from 1850 to 1970.
