Himalayan Fashion will astound you with its variety and colour! Don’t miss this stunning new exhibition of fashion and textiles in a unique country house setting. Discover sumptuous silk brocades, geometric dhaka cotton weaves, fine Kashmir wool shawls and rainbows of printed prayer flags. 

See the whole range of fashion from costly court outfits and high end designer dresses to everyday wear and clothing worn by everyone from Buddhist monks to Gurkhas.
Leeds has a great range of costume from Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan, thanks to the purchases made by former curator, Veronica Johnston, who travelled in the region in the late 1980s and 1990s. Now we have teamed up with National Museums Liverpool, Leeds Nepalese Community and Harewood House to create this unique chance to learn about the role of fashion and textiles in Himalayan cultures. National Museums Liverpool are lending sumptuous official dress from the 1920s and a Bhutan stag mask from before 1914. Leeds Nepalese Community has lent contemporary best dress and David Lascelles, Earl of Harewood, is lending two masks and costume elements from Bhutan, from the inauguration of the Harewood Buddhist stupa in 2005. 

A Himalayan family fun day is being planned for late June and a seminar day for 10 September. 

Free with admission to Lotherton
