Join Curator Elinor Camille-Wood as she takes you on a riotous journey through the fabulously outrageous fashions of the 1830s, the time Elizabeth Gaskell set her novel, Wives and Daughters. Discover what the characters would have worn from large sleeves to intricate hairstyles in a period of flamboyant ladies and fashionable gentleman.

The talk will include a discussion about the costumes worn in the 1999 BBC adaptation of Wives and Daughters and other notable on screen dramas such as BBC’s Gentleman Jack, Pride and Prejudice and Poldark.

Elinor Camille-Wood is a freelance Curator whose previous roles have included working with a variety of museums across Yorkshire and most recently with Calderdale Museums opening a Fashion Gallery at Bankfield Museum, Halifax. She has curated several fashion exhibitions across both Bankfield Museum and Shibden Hall including the hugely popular ‘Costumes from Gentleman Jack’.
