Costumes from The Old Globe

Costumes from The Old Globe

Last week I attended The Old Globe's annual fashion show fundraiser. On display before the fashion show were some beautiful costumes from past productions. I took pictures of the gorgeous outfits to share with you. Enjoy!


This dress is from the  The Old Globe's production of The Madness of King George. It was worn by the actress playing Queen Charlotte and is late Georgian era.

Looking for a stunning ball gown with a hint of history? Then check out this one from Twelfth Night. The sign for it (pictured below) says it is Modern/Elizabethan" inspired.

If late Edwardian is more your style, then you will love this 1919 inspired dress from the production Much A Do About Nothing. I love the purple color.

I love the dresses, wouldn't it be interesting if we dressed like this now. I would certainly move out of Florida as the clothing would be too hot. Pretty dresses, nice slice of history.
