Welcome to TGGC

Welcome to The Georgian Costume Company! (TGCC for short) We are passionate about all things 18th C from society to costume and culture. We have done a lot of studying of this era, and have been excited as well as pleasantly suprised at how beautiful and stylist the 18th C really was.

In a nutshell  we are a Research Company that looks specifically at the   18th C.  Then we use our research to create accurate and informative displays on 18th C costume and culture for Museums and Historic Houses. We love the idea that we can aid people to get a sense and taste for what it must have been like to be a person back in that time and really bring the past alive.

Please feel free to browse through this website and find out more about how we work, our goals and, and all the we are doing here at TGCC.

We engaged Michelle to work with us when we were conserving an eighteenth century court mantua. The dress came to us in pieces and we needed to undertake conservation work on it. Michelle, with her excellent knowledge of historical garments, was able to work with our conservator and together they pooled their knowledge and expertise and pieced the garment back together. We all found her extremely easy to work with. Super-enthusiastic. Careful. Considered. And great fun! I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle for work on re-creating historical garments.

Michelle came to Coleridge Cottage and put on a beautiful exhibition of Georgian costumes. She interacted with our visitors, explaining about the different costumes and helping to bring them to life and provided a brilliant experience for our visitors. Her costumes and exhibition really helped to show visitors the variation in clothing for Georgian people. Bethan, Coleridge Cottage, National Trust

This has been a bit of a stop-starter due to other works and deadlines, but this is such an exciting mantua to be replicating that we’re itching to crack on with it again....

About Us

For us it all starts with the garments themselves – and some of them are M.E.S.S.Y! But, making sense of the logic behind the mess is one of our favourite jobs. Click here to read more of what we do and where we come from.
