Killerton House in Exeter has opened 'an evocative exhibition of frothy dance dresses, glittering evening clothes and gorgeous accessories' from their costume collection:
"The displays will include 19th and 20th-century gowns for special occasions – sumptuous dinner dresses, glittering cocktail and ball gowns and elaborate stoles and evening mantles. Accessories such as fans, gloves, shoes, bags and artificial flower corsages will also feature."It sounds gorgeous... if only I knew someone in Devon who could put me up! Shall We Dance? is on till October 29 2006.
