EDG is taking the fashion world by exhibition – three to be exact. All three are available for booking today!


From 1912 to the mid 1920s – before, during and after World War I – the world underwent enormous social changes and the fashion of the period followed suit.  So we have the vestiges of the bustle-back and hobble skirts as we move to corset-less bodices and shorter skirts; even the advent of the brassiere and the handbag. 

Dressing Downton is based on the widely popular television series Downton Abbey, now in its fourth season, and highlights one of the most exciting and persistently intriguing eras in history.  Set amid the trappings of a great English country estate, the award-winning series explores the lives of its aristocratic inhabitants and their servants – together with the latest fashion trends.  The 35 costumes in the exhibition have in large part been provided by the renowned British costume house, Cosprop Ltd.  They include the dress Lady Mary wears the night Matthew proposes, Lady Sybil’s fashion-forward turquoise harem pants worn at dinner, and a selection of over-the-top ensembles worn by the Dowager Countess played in the series by Maggie Smith.

From Katharine Hepburn’s New York City home comes a collection of costumes worn by Hepburn on stage and screen and donated by her estate to the Kent State University Museum in Ohio, where this unique exhibition was created. Through more than 35 costumes selected from the actress’s personal collection, together with photos and memorabilia, the exhibition introduces the world to this renowned actress, role model and fashion icon, who was one of Hollywood’s greatest screen legends. Worn for the stage, for film and television, as well as for publicity shots and in private life, the costumes reflect not only the style of a fashion icon, but also an outspoken, independent and feisty woman.  Hepburn fought for her beliefs and broke down fashion barriers in a career that spanned six decades, and her sense of style influenced countless women, fashion designers, and the informal, elegant approach to American style seen on today's runways.

Hepburn's performance clothes include stage costumes from The Philadelphia Story, Without Love and Coco; screen costumes from such classic films as Stage Door, Adam's Rib and Long Day's Journey Into Night; and her television movies, such as Love Among the Ruins. In addition, the Exhibition includes Hepburn's "signature look," an ensemble of tailored beige trousers and linen jackets, as well as vintage posters, playbills, photos and other Hepburn-related artifacts.

Organized by Kent State University Museum


In another collaboration with Cosprop Ltd., EDG is preparing to send the very successful CUT! exhibition on tour to Europe.  In the meantime, the exhibition is available for booking in North America for a limited time.

CUT! Costume and the Cinema focuses on how period costumes are made for the screen.  Its highlights include costumes from blockbusters such as Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and the recent Sherlock Holmes as well as films recognized for their incomparable parade of costumes such as The Duchess and The Phantom of the Opera.

Gateway Online said CUT! is “a fun and exciting exhibit that allows museum-goers to experience costumes up-close and personal.” The Reader (Durham, Nebraska) said the exhibition “appeals to movie lovers of all ages” while the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times referred to the costumes as “a really sophisticated version of dress-up . . . all very glamorous and a little nostalgic”.  According to Gay Calgary Magazine, CUT! showcases the "crème-de-la-crème" of costuming in period films. The exhibit aims to showcase the craftsmanship and skill that goes into pieces we only see for mere flashes on film.
