1950s Fashion: Horrockses & The Royal Tour

On Thursday I will speaking at the Fashion & Textile Museum about Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family’s choice of Horrockses Fashions when on royal tours. So am busy putting the talk together, trawling through old newspaper reports and newsreel footage, trying to identify which of the dresses worn were Horrockses Fashions.

Last month I was lucky enough to purchase a dress in the same design as one that the Queen wore on her 1953 Commonwealth tour (a different colourway) – I will be bringing it along on Thursday.

I will be writing more in Research soon.
