2019 Costume Exhibtion

The Cost of Fashion

image2 croppedThe fashion industry is one of the top 5 most polluting industries in the world.

Discover how fashion has affected our environment and wildlife since the 19th century.

Cotton production, invention of chemical dyes, slave trade, sweat- shops  and the fur industry have all contributed to environmental pollution, health issues, water shortages and cruelty to animals.

People are now buying twice as many clothes as they did 10 years ago so we need to consider the impact of this on future generations.

Find out more in our 2019 Costume Exhibition on view in our Costume Gallery until late 2019.
