The Costumes of Downton Abbey

Winterthur Museum gallery


Perhaps you have heard that the Winterthur Museum in Delaware has installed a new exhibit called The Costumes of Downton Abbey.




Winterthur has rented costumes, primarily from Cosprop Ltd, which specializes in period costumes.


Here is the schedule for a series of lectures.

The exhibit will be up through January 4, 2015.

The costumes are right but the yellow Labrador Retriever is all wrong. Geesh. You'd think that if they go to all that trouble for clothing accuracy, they'd at least have done their homework on the dog.

And isn't that Labrador as American as Shirley Maclaine?

I just love your blogs :) They are so informative and inspiring. I've been wondering if the latest line of fabric called Downton Abbey would work in the Jane Austin block of the week that is about to begin? I've been looking for some of the Lately Arrived from London line you had out a few years ago but can't find any. Thanks in advance for your help on this matter :) laurie
