Explore RAMM’s collection of 1920s’ fashion in this half day course.

This workshop will focus on dress in the 1920s, a time of change for women’s fashion in particular. Mrs Doreen Pavey kept examples of clothing worn by her mother, brother and sisters from the 1920s. Using the Pavey collection we will look at the influences of modernism, mass-production and the innovative use of new materials, such as rayon, on dress. There will also be the chance to see other garments from RAMM’s collection up close, including a stunning beaded evening dress.
