Victorian Secrets with Madeline Gray, North Lincolnshire Museums Collections Assistant, Decorative Arts. 

Wednesday 25 May

Undress the past, layer by layer, to discover the burden of clothes for the Victorian lady. Costume from the collection can be seen close up, and is used to show the typical attire of the period. This talk looks at the role that clothing played in the Victorian era. Was any of it practical, or was it all a matter of status and attractiveness? Explore the role of a woman, her place in society, and how her clothes symbolised this.
