Opening 9th July 2010: our feel-good summer exhibition Horrockses Fashions - Off The Peg Style in the '40s and '50s.
Beautiful summer dresses and glamorous evening wear were specialities of Horrockses Fashions Limited, manufacturer of one of the most respected ready-to-wear labels of the 1940s and 1950s.
The company is best known for its full-skirted dresses that were sought after by women everywhere and were even worn by Queen Elizabeth II.
