Hampton Court Palace: Baroque costume display

Amazing that these are all made of paper. Until I got to the closeups, I thought they were white fabric.

It doesn't look like paper at all. Really great. Are these still on display?

Lou said...

I understand you have organized a trip to Smowshill Manor for Thursady. Do you have any places left? What is the price? What does the event include?

Dear Laura,
Yes, this display is still there. I heartily recommend it.

Lou, yes, we still have some places on this small tour. It is 45 pounds if you come in our large vehicle or 35 pounds if you provide your own transport. Entry to the National Trust property and refreshments are extra. My email is if you wish to discuss this further - I check it morning and night only.

Many thanks,

How the heck did they keep the paper so clean??? When I work on white fabric Im always washing my hands but the garments still pick up dirt...
Really beautiful. reminds me of a Met exhibit years ago with baroque clothing and wigs made of white paper. It was stunning.
