Fans of Netflix’s “The Crown” who are planning a visit the US should be sure to check out Winterthur Museum in Delaware, which is hosting the world’s first comprehensive costume exhibition “Costuming The Crown” featuring 40 costumes from Netflix's most acclaimed original series.
Running through January 5, 2020, the exhibition examines the role that costumes, and the costume designers’ decisions played in creating Peter Morgan’s fictionalised account of Queen Elizabeth II’s story. It has already won two Golden Globes and eight Emmys and the much-anticipated third season featuring Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman is slated to premier later this year.
Season 1 designer Michele Clapton, Season 2 designer Jane Petrie (Black Mirror) and producer Eve Swannell (Criminal) joined the team at Winterthur for the launch.
The exhibition features 40 costumes from the Emmy and Golden Globe Winning first two seasons including the dazzling gold of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation robe, the simple sophistication of Princess Margaret’s wedding dress, the majesty of royal crowns and tiaras to the comfort of clothes worn in private family moments.
Winterthur is America’s premiere decorative arts Museum, and previously hosted a successful exhibition featuring costumes from Downtown Abbey. The admission is $20 (Bt640) adults , $18 students/seniors, $6 children 211 and the museum is opens Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
