In 2017, the Fashion and Textile Museum hosted an exhibition titled '1920s Jazz Age: Fashion and Photographs'. It was such a hit they're now back with this, an exhibition looking at the era between the Roaring Twenties and wartime austerity. Fashionwise, the 30s are a bit of a forgotten decade, but as this show will surely prove, it was a time of beautiful and innovative design - one that anticipated the joyous femininity of Dior's New Look in the 1950s. 

The exhibition coincides with a display of photographs by Cecil Beaton, one of Britain's most famous portrait photographers. The 'Thirty from the 30s' selection will bring together many of Beaton's most iconic images from the decade.
