Lords and Ladies. Counts and Countesses. Dukes and Duchesses. Britain of the early 20th century was rich in noble tradition and sumptuous style…and it still is today. Those elaborate and elegant fashions of the day are given eye-catching tribute in the most popular and successful British period drama to grace television screens in a long time, Downton Abbey.
Some of the brilliant and beautiful costume designs previously worn by Downton Abbey‘s cast are on display for the Canadian premiere of the Dressing For Downton Exhibit at Spadina Museum, Toronto’s Downton Abbey, from March 11 to April 13, 2014.. To celebrate, we’ve partnered with VisitBritain, DH Tour – London and UK Specialists and the City of Toronto Historic Sites’ Spadina Museum to give you the chance to win a 9-day Trip for 2 to England on DH Tour’s Royal Residences and Castles Tour including a visit to Highclere Castle, the filming location for Downton Abbey!
