Sport and Fashion
The red, white and blue suit that Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams wore at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 is on display at the Fashion Museum in Sport and Fashion, from 4 February 2012.
In the year of the 2012 Olympics, this special display at the Fashion Museum in Bath examines the close connection between active sportswear and fashion by showcasing examples of historic sportswear from the museum collection alongside modern fashions and the very best of today’s sportswear.
Historic highlights include a cream wool suit with red and blue stripes worn by a member of the Park Tobogganing Club in London in the 1880s, and also beautifully tailored Victorian century riding habits. There is also a monogrammed cream silk tennis dresses from the 1920s, and swimsuits and swimming costumes for men and for women. All are part of the Fashion Museum’s world-famous collection of historic dress.
Fashion has continually borrowed from sport, both in fabric and cut as well as the look and styling of garments, and the display also incorporates work by up-to-the-minute fashion designers who have been inspired by active sportswear, including Pam Hogg who has created second skin stage-wear for pop star Jessie J.
A one-off photographic display runs alongside the Sport and Fashion exhibition profiling the work of the influential stylist Ray Petri who created Buffalo, a design collective of young talented photographers, stylists and models in the 1980s. Petri’s ground-breaking work – putting together a signature look mixing up sportswear and fashion – created a cool aesthetic and produced some of the most famous front covers of the iconic magazine “The Face”.
