Fashion at Killerton

Killerton's fashion collection is the largest cared for by the National Trust, with over 20,000 pieces of clothing, accessories and objects. Each year, specially selected items are displayed in the changing exhibition. You've got until 30 October to catch this year's exhibition. The fashion exhibition will go online in 2017, and returns to the house as normal in 2018.

Killerton's 2016 exhibition: fashion to dye for 

It's your last chance to see the fashion exhibition until 2018. Don't miss following the development of colours and dyes throughout history, illustrated with vibrant pieces from the historic collection. Next year, we need to close the first floor to make way for conservation to the house and roof. Don't miss the small online exhibition.
