The Lucien Lelong jacket at the Fashion Museum

This jacket was designed by the Parisian couturier Lucien Lelong in the late 1940s for Vivien Leigh. It is captured here on display at the Fashion Museum Bath in an exhibition case containing women's fashions from the 1940s and 1950s. Amidst the other items, the jacket stands out for its bold colours and strong contrasts. A plaque accompanies the display explaining that the dress was made for Vivien Leigh by Lelong in 1947.
