More than 70 outfits are on display in this new exhibition, which explores shopping and style in Liverpool during the interwar years. An English lady’s wardrobe offers new insight into Liverpool’s wealthy Tinne family, showcasing clothing and accessories purchased by Mrs Emily Margaret Tinne (1886-1966).
The Tinne Collection is the largest collection of a single person’s clothing in any UK gallery. The Walker has displayed numerous items from the collection over recent years, but An English lady’s wardrobe is the largest exhibition yet. In addition to Emily Tinne’s clothing, it features costumes belonging to her children as well as outfits worn by the family’s servants.
