‘Anything Goes! Fashion in the 1920s’ is a deep dive into one of the most influential eras of fashion to date. It is said that the modern woman’s wardrobe was born in the 1920s, when layering and traditions were replaced with easy fit garments that revealed the arms, necks and legs for the first time. Corsets were abandoned entirely, shocking older generations who saw this as the equivalent to being naked - which was exactly the appeal to the new generation of bold, modern women!

Designers today continue to take inspiration from the era’s geometric patterns, strong colours and sense of freedom. One of these designers is Sara O’Neill, who has created a collection of garments inspired by women who worked in Belfast’s once thriving textiles mills. You can see one of Sara’s pieces, the ‘Dreamer’ Kimono from her Éadach label in our exhibition.

This is a free exhibition with no booking necessary.
