“Downton Abbey” fans are in for a treat in February when Chicago’s Driehaus Museum hosts the exhibit “Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times.”
The exhibit, which runs Feb.9 -May 8, 2016 at the museum, 40 E. Erie, will feature more than 35 costumes from the hit PBS series. The show is back for its sixth and final season on Jan. 3, 2016. It airs locally on WTTW-11.
Tickets for the exhibit must be purchased in advance and are on sale now at the museum or online at DriehausMuseum.org.
“It’s fascinating to see the evolution of fashion over the course of four seasons of Downton Abbey,” said Driehaus Museum Guest Curator Ruta Saliklis, via a prepared statement. “Throughout the exhibition, visitors learn about the historical and cultural influences evident in these visually stunning costumes. These remarkable costumes imbue the Museum’s galleries with a powerful sense of that life.”
