With the desire to bring a fresh connection for visitors and broaden the expanse of their experience, our costume displays have been designed and created for this purpose; to bring the history home.
Our displays fall into 3 categories:
- Flexible Mannequins: These mannequins are subtly designed to tell a story, create a scene and fill in the sense of everyday lives from history. They are dressed completely historically accurate, from the first layer of the shift or shirt, right through to the many layers worn in the clothing of the 18th century. All our research goes right into the details with these garments. These displays will come with facts sheets for the room guides, can include a talk on dressing and other interactive tools.
- Tailor’s Dummies Displays: Create that traditional style display of gowns and garments in any room – from a single mannequin to ‘interest up’ a corner, to a whole range showing the development of a single style of dress, or the date range of costume featured within the property. These Tailored Dummies can be incredibly versatile and work well to bring fashion nearer to the experience of the visitor.
- Research Displays: Our research can be out-spilled into a factual display, teaching the development of fashion or exhibiting the closer details brought up by the research.
