5 reasons why you all should visit Fashion Museum Bath

Back in July Egija and I went to Fashion Museum Bath. It was during the heatwave and to be quite honest we just wanted to escape it. Fashion Museum is located in a basement to, I assume, protect the items exhibited. You get the picture, it was the perfect hideaway for us.

Beginning of this year I was invited to see Lace in Fashion exhibit in Fashion Museum Bath and always wanted to come back to explore more. Now, I don't call myself a fashionista and I don't follow any trends, but I do love a good gown and can appreciate the history behind it. Here are my five reasons why you should definitely visit Fashion Museum Bath.

1. You get to dress up! Yes, there is a room full of Victorian style dresses and even corsets you can try on and have a twirl in. They even had amazing head pieces and if you know me, you know I love a good hat!

2. The previously mentioned Lace in Fashion exhibition is truly fantastic. It holds not only lace from 1200s but also some amazing modern pieces by such famous designer houses as Balenciaga.

3. At the end of the exhibit you get to see the Dress of the Year award winner right there in Bath. They had some breathtaking pieces and one of the dresses was entirely made from a material that kinda resembles cling film.

4. I am a history junky. I like to know how people lived, what their daily tasks were and what they liked to wear. Fashion Museum Bath is set up in a chronological order and their free audio guides really make you see how people lived, wore and developed accordingly to what was happening in the world at the time.

5. Lastly, I would definitely suggest you to visit this museum if you love inspiration. This was such an inspirational trip for me, I'm even saving up for my own sewing machine. You're allowed to take pictures, so you can always look back and get your motivation back. Fashion inspires not only the way we dress, but also the way we live, do makeup, eat and so on.

What do you guys think? Are these reasons good enough? Make sure to tag me on Twitter or Instagram if you visit the museum, would like to know how your visit went.
