Joséphine: The Woman of Fashion

The Bowes Museum

Joséphine Bowes (1825 - 1874) was a very fashionable Parisian woman. Sadly, her wardrobe does not survive, except for two bodices and a blouse, but her dress bills and her fashion magazines remain. A selection of these will be shown with her clothes and some of her jewellery. A beautiful lilac evening bodice is to displayed for the first time with a matching skirt designed by Luca Costigliolo, for which he has made the crinoline and petticoat.
