Style Picks - Paper Dolls

A new temporary exhibition opens at Wakefield Museum on Saturday 28 June.  Style Picks showcases the museum's historic costume collection. The display is a colourful celebration of women's wear trends from 1730 to today.

Whilst researching the museum collections for the exhibition we found some fantastic paper doll postcards from the 1920s:

These paper dolls inspired our own version using costume from the collection:

If you would like to have a go at our special paper doll, come along to the exhibition and pick a copy up.

Style Picks runs from 28 June 2014 to 31 January 2015.  Free admission, open during Museum opening times.

This exhibition was funded with support from Arts Council England


  1. The exhibition dates seem wrong to me, should it be 28 June 2014 to 31 January 2015?

  2. You are absolutely right! Thanks, I've just ammended it.


We would love your comments - though they may take a day or two to appear.
