The Walker Art Gallery will display more than 70 outfits in this new exhibition, which explores shopping and style in Liverpool during the interwar years.
‘An English lady’s wardrobe’ will offer new insight into Liverpool’s wealthy Tinne family, showcasing clothing and accessories purchased by Mrs Emily Margaret Tinne (1886-1966).
The Tinne Collection is the largest collection of a single person’s clothing in any UK gallery. The Walker has displayed numerous items from the collection over recent years, but ‘An English lady’s wardrobe’ will be the largest exhibition yet.
In addition to Emily Tinne’s clothing, it will feature costumes belonging to her children as well as outfits worn by the family’s servants.
