The Fashion and Textile Museum is ready to welcome another incredible collection – this time of the Royal variety. Showcasing some of the most beautifully crafted dresses of the 20th century, 'Hartnell to Amies: Couture By Royal Appointment' will highlight the influential relationship between the Queen and her personal royal couturiers. The exhibition will track the careers of Norman Hartnell and Hardy Amies, the men behind some of the most recognisable of the Queen's wardrobe pieces, including her wedding and Coronation dresses.
