The new designer fashion costume display opened in the Craft and Design gallery of the Walker Art Gallery this Saturday (2 December 2006). Our online feature provides background information on the designs on display.

The display includes work by André Courrèges, Jean Muir, Bill Gibb, Yves St Laurent, Vivienne Westwood (Buffalo Girls and Anglomania), Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, Juicy Couture, Hardy Blechman.

Sam’s already blogged about the arrival of the mannequins, a visit from Ian Silverberg and a hole in  the Vivienne Westwood dress; there’s also a flickr set showing the mannequins in the textile conservation studio.
