Some photos of the absolutely stunning 17th century embroidered costume and accessories I saw today on my trip to the Gilt and Silk Exhibition at The Burrell Collection, Glasgow.
There were several coifs and men’s hats, a pair of gloves and the stars of the exhibition; a waistcoat and petticoat panels. To think that most of the items on display were around 400 years old was just amazing!
The exhibition is on until the 23rd of December this year and I would definitely recommend making a trip if you can. Being able to take photos was a great treat at a historic textile exhibition and I have some very inspirational pictures and memories!
Went to the Gilt and Silk exhibition at The Burrell Collection today and it was AMAZING! I posted some photos and a little write up on my dress diary, but thought I would reblog it here too.
