Dowager Dresses and Khaleesi Cloaks Coming to Canada

TV addicts and costume fanatics listen up! We Wardens of the North love nothing more than a ruddy good period drama, which makes the news of both Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey costume exhibits all that more exciting! Yes, in the period of one week, there's been separate announcements that each of these shows – HBO and BBC/PBS respectively – will be putting their wares on display, kicking off highly-anticipated Canadian tours in Toronto.

First, the Game of Thrones details. Having been featured at the TIFF Bell Lightbox last year, the GoT exhibit drew crowds from all corners of the seven kingdoms, nay, the GTA as it showed off an array of costumes, props, armour and weapons.

Now set to return once again to the Lightbox from May 14-18, we can this time expect to see costumes “created by artisans whose extraordinary craftsmanship has lent authenticity to the show since its inception.” The free exhibit will then move to Vancouver where it'll be housed at the Pacific National Exhibition from August 16 – September 1.

Now for all you Crawley fashion admirers. The Downton Abbey exhibit is being curated by the Spadina Museum and will be on display in Toronto from March 11 to April 13. It will be the first Downton tour of its kind in North America and is set to coincide with the Canadian premiere of Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey.

Downton Abbey

Tickets will be priced at $25 to $35 and for that you can expect to see twenty costumes, all seen in the first three seasons, along with nine accompanying hats. Lady Sybil's nurse's scarf, Lady Cora's wide-brimmed picture hat and the cloche Lady Mary wore with her pregnancy suit will be just some of the famed pieces on display.

“People will have a fun experience seeing the costumes from the show, and get a better understanding of how fashion trends travelled very quickly around the world,” Karen Edwards, Spadina museum’s administrator, told Star. “Toronto women were able to keep up very quickly with what was happening in Paris and London.”

Now I don’t know which exhibit I’m more excited about. The opportunity to gander at the grandeur of Lannister robes or to covet the romantic idylls of the Downton ladies’ formalwear that has inspired so many modern fashions of late? Decisions, decisions…which are you most eager to visit?

David Bailey Becomes a Fashion Designer?

After spending half a century photographing fashion, it seems only fitting that legendary photographer David Bailey has finally turned his hand to design.

Bailey teamed up with East London Design studio The Bleach Room to create a T-shirt range based on his most infamous artwork. You can buy the shirts from now for a rather reasonable $115.

Although the designs took over a year to perfect, Bailey characteristically downplayed the collaboration by stating that “it’s not fashion, it’s just a T-shirt.” The images include portraits of Grace Jones, Boy George and Johnny Depp that pretty much no one would be able to afford to hang on her walls, so this is the perfect way to own a Bailey work of art.

As the 76-year-old artist said himself at the launch this week, “Not everyone can afford a print [so] it’s a nice way of making [my work available] for everyone… I think it’s quite nice that everyone can have a T-shirt that has an image with some history behind it.”

If you want to go for the full Bailey experience, you can wear your T-shirt to his upcoming exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery in London. The photographer has partnered with Hugo Boss to showcase over 250 portraits personally selected by him, and with a career spanning over 50 years that must have been one mean feat. The images range from a dishevelled Kate Moss to a haunting image of the artist Francis Bacon, so you can take in a world of faces while trying to spot the ones on the T-shirts.

Bailey's Stardust runs from 6 February – 1 June,
