ON NOW: What we wear
Our latest exhibition ‘What We Wear’ showcases some of the wonderful uniforms held in the collection.
Most of these uniforms have never been on display before this exhibition and range from a 1980s Police uniform to a Kentucky Fried Chicken uniform from the 2010s.
The exhibition looks at what uniforms represent and the role they have in our society. Uniforms can have many different roles. Sometimes a uniform is a practical piece of clothing that is meant to protect the wearer while other uniforms are largely symbolic and are meant to convey a message either to the public or the person wearing it.
Be sure to come down and check out ‘What We Wear’, perhaps a uniform you wore might be on display.
