Fans of fashion and art are being treated to a fascinating new exhibition at Harrogate’s Mercer Art Gallery.

All Dressed Up: Costume, Fashion and Style in Paintings will tell the story of fashion across the centuries and across the social classes.

The paintings, all selected from The Harrogate Fine Art Collection at the gallery, offer an engaging look into costumes and their wearers: from the fashionable garb of 16th century Knaresborough aristocrat Sir Francis Slingsby, who was beheaded for treason, to the working clothes of 1930’s Kentish Hop Pickers.
