Edwardian Splendour

Provost Skene's House

Exhibition

11/09/2010 - 20/11/2010

On the 6th May 1910 exactly 100 years ago King Edward VII passed away bringing to an end the brief but heady years of the Edwardian period.

Like its King, Edwardian society was larger than life, with a swirl of balls, dinners and weekend-long country house parties. High fashion became a symbol of social status and with numerous activities came a set of strict dress codes. This exhibition highlights costume worn during this opulent period.
