Joséphine: The Woman of Fashion
The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle: Dates: Aug 26, 2017 until Nov 30, 2017. Joséphine Bowes (1825 – 1874) was a very fashionable Parisian woman. Sadly, her wardrobe does not survive, except for two bodices and a blouse, but her dress bills and her fashion magazines remain. A selection of these will be shown with her clothes and some of her jewellery. A beautiful lilac evening bodice is to displayed for the first time with a matching skirt designed by Luca Costigliolo,.
