The City of Toronto’s Spadina Museum, in partnership with VisionTV/ZoomerMedia, proudly present the Canadian premiere of Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey, March 11 to April 13, 2014.
The exhibition features costumes and photographs from the series, Downton- themed tours and teas. The tour takes visitors through the museum’s family and servants’ spaces and links the characters and events from the TV show to real Toronto history.
Twenty authentic Downton Abbey costumes from Seasons 1 to 3 have been borrowed from Cosprop, Ltd., the London-based costume house that designs and creates the beautiful clothing worn by the cast of the television show. Nine of the costumes have accompanying hats, from Lady Sybil’s nurse’s scarf, to Lady Cora’s wide-brimmed picture hat, to Lady Mary’s cloche worn with her pregnancy suit. The costumes are all historically accurate, some made entirely of new textiles, and others using a mix of new and vintage fabrics.
Two ticket options are available: Exhibit and Tour; or Exhibit, Tea and Tour. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, and is closed Mondays. Tickets for this exhibition are available for purchase online at www.spadinamuseum.streamintickets.com
