50 fabulous frocks

The word ‘frock’ does not bring with it connotations of femininity and glamour, rather ideas of a something relative to a shapeless sack, which cuts a frumpy figure. Last weekend we visited the Bath Fashion Museum’s ’50 Fabulous Frocks’ exhibition’, proving the preconceived images conjured up by the very word are in fact rather outdated.
From Erdem to Chanel to Zandra Rhodes, we were taken through the different decades by a mixture of 50 designs, celebrating 50 years of the Fashion Musuem.
