About this event

Vicky Garrington explores a variety of historic dress from a much-mended maid’s uniform of the early 20th century to a sumptuous 18th century silk dress scattered with tulips. Materials, methods of making and wearers will all be considered, building a picture of Edinburgh inhabitants through the clothes they wore.

Vicky Garrington has been Curator: History with Museums & Galleries Edinburgh for ten years. She specialises in costume and wartime collections, but has responsibility for a wide range of objects from domestic appliances to protest material. Vicky previously managed the archive of the Air Force Museum of New Zealand. She is interested in material culture and connecting people through objects, and is a collector of contemporary studio pottery.
