Tudor fashion in west Yorkshire

Date Posted: 17/09/2011

The Royal Armouries in Leeds has just welcomed The Tudors Courtly Couture Collection to its Tournament Gallery. Available to see from now until the 30th November, the exhibition will comprise costumes from the hit TV series The Tudors.

Across the series, which starred Joely Richardson and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, around 500 pieces were made and countless others were rented and modified. The degree of skill employed can be seen in every detail of the attire from fabric, to braid, to button. The loan of these costumes has been made possible with the help of the show’s costume designer Joan Bergin, The Tudors creator Michael Hirst, and the Mary Rose Trust.

Admission to the Royal Armouries museum is free, and visiting groups can enjoy five galleries and a host of interactive exhibits.
