Fashion Museum display

This image shows materials on display related to dress artefacts at the Fashion Museum Bath as part of the Reframing Vivien Leigh project launch event held at the University of Exeter in February 2020. Items include a copy of Doris Langley Moore's book The Woman in Fashion, which featured Vivien Leigh, and a range of artefacts connected to Vivien Leigh's role in a film adaptation of Anna Karenina in the late 1940s. Doris Langley Moore corresponded with Vivien Leigh about her appearance in the film and the costumes she wore. Because of their connection through the costume designer Beatrice 'Bumble' Dawson, several dress items of Vivien Leigh's were passed on to Doris Langley Moore's Fashion Museum after her death by her daughter, Suzanne Farrington. The display also includes information about Vivien Leigh's connection to designer Lucien Lelong, who created a red and black jacket for her now held at the museum.
