FASHION students’ creations are being exhibited alongside costumes from the silver screen as part of Cannon Hall Museum’s ‘Costume from the Classics’ exhibition.

Included in the displays are period costumes from films such as The Duchess worn by Keira Knightley and The Danish Girl, worn by Eddie Redmayne, alongside blockbusters made for TV including Murder on the Orient Express.

Fashion students have collaborated with Cannon Hall Museum on an exciting live project contributing to the exhibition.

The first-year fashion students were tasked with creating their own costume pieces, inspired by both the exhibition and the collections at the museum, adding a unique and contemporary touch to the historical theme.

The students had two weeks to design and create their pieces ahead of the launch of the exhibition earlier this month. Each piece was reviewed by Cosprop, a prominent UK costumier who provided the costume for the exhibit, with three dresses being selected to sit alongside those from the silver screen.

The exhibition runs until September 15.
