About this title


This lavishly illustrated catalogue will accompany an exhibition at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in 2006.The items on display are drawn from the extensive wardrobe of four generations of Lord Snowdon's family--the Messel-Rosse-Linley-Sambourne-Snowdons. The book uses these examples to trace the evolution of stylish English dress from the late nineteenth century to the 1970s, and is brought up to modern times through items lent by living family members.
