Reflections Exhibition, Ulster Museum, Belfast
We finally found time to visit the Ulster Museum's new costume gallery which is currently showcasing a small but diverse collection of costumes from 1730-2013 in the 'Reflections' exhibition. We were greeted by a taster exhibition in the foyer including two quintessential Chanel suits. We couldn't wait to see the rest and weren't disappointed as the pieces on show were well selected to portray every era of style, including excellent examples of hand embroidery and superb design and craftsmanship. Also of interest, in the adjoining gallery, is a beautiful collection of jewellery from the 16th Century to the present day - definitely worth a look.
No visit to the Museum is complete without a visit to the shop and there is a great variety of fashion literature, covering any and every aspect of style, on sale. There is also a section devoted to young fashionistas- in -training.
There's no excuse not to visit as the exhibition runs until April next year, for further details on opening times, etc. check out their website here.
