Favorite Downton Abbey Costumes

The Dressing Downton Exhibit was recently in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and if you're into costumes or fashion it's definitely a show to check out. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

You'll get a uniquely 360 view of the costumes in real size (you may be surprised how petite everything is), an up-close look at the finishing touches made (or not!) for the camera, and discover clever designs throughout the eras that span the popular TV series (1530s to 1925) Downton Abbey®.

Photos will not capture the experience of seeing the costumes up close, the details of the stitching and unique folding, pleating, shirring, and more that achieve the final looks. So, to find the exhibit and attend when it's at a loction near you, visit the official website: Dressing Downton.

Still want more? Visit the official Costumes of Downtown Abbey website at Winterthur. The exhibit opens in the spring.
