Each room along the visitor route pays homage to a British fashion icon. You'll start in the Great Hall and as you travel through the Palace you will be treated to a visually stunning fashion exhibition. We've curated a collection of clothing, accessories, archival materials, drawings, photography, and patterns, seamlessly integrated with the priceless Blenheim collections to provide a fresh and captivating experience.

We are honoured to collaborate with British designers and celebrate the incredible creativity within the UK's fashion industry. Blenheim Palace has a rich history in British fashion, having hosted fashion shows, photoshoots, and catwalks attended by high society and royalty. Our Palace is the perfect backdrop to showcase the lasting impact of British fashion on the global stage over the years.

‘Behind the seams’, preparations are in full swing, and we can't wait to share this exhibition with you. Be sure to register your interest and sign up for our newsletter below.
