Getting Ready For Bath…

With our upcoming trip to Bath, England, we’ve been doing a little research on what to see et al. Naturally, museums are at the top of our list and in particular, the Fashion Museum Bath.  One of the more interesting items in their collection is an evening dress that was originally made by Worth in 1902 – 1903 for Lady Mary Curzon, who was the Vicereine of India at the time. As the wife of the Viceroy of India, Lady Curzon was in a high profile position that required her to look her best at all times and this dress was just one of a large wardrobe that she had:

We’re looking forward to seeing this, along with the rest of the collection, when we visit Bath in April. 🙂
