From exhibitions on the fashion designer who dressed Marilyn Monroe to a show on the frocks worn by the Supremes, fashion addicts will get their fix and more besides at the gloriously glam Fashion Museum in the Georgian Assembly Rooms in Bath. This museum examines the history of fashion from all angles and has come up with some wonderful exhibitions in the past. These include a Laura Ashley retrospective looking at 1970 and 1980s trends, an examination of how monarchs have been portrayed through costume on the small and large screen, an exhibition of Diana Princess of Wales' dresses and a focus on fashion photography with pieces from Jean Muir and Mary Quant. Our favourite item? The Silver Tissue dress, the oldest dress in the museum, which dates circa 1660.
