Horrockses Fashions exhibition opens at the Fashion and Textile Museum


We mentioned this a while back when we were talking about the V&A's range of Horrockses-inspired products and now is your chance to see some of the originals as the Horrockses Fashions: Off the Peg style in the '40s and '50s opens at London's Fashion and Textile Museum.

Horrockses Fashions were best known for their full-skirted, bold and brightly printed cotton dresses. The exhibition gives you the opportunity to find out a bit more about the label and the people - including the Queen - who wore them, as well as ogle their unique and coveted designs. An accompanying book by the exhibition curator, Christine Boydell, is available for £17.49 from Amazon.

The exhibition opens on Friday, 9 July and runs until 24 October.
