The 20th century haute couture and contemporary collections are the most distinctive elements of the dress collection. Every designer of note is represented, from Paul Poiret, Coco Chanel and Christian Dior to Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood.
We buy an International Designer Outfit and a High Street Outfit every season - a purchasing policy unique to the Ulster Museum, which has given us a very comprehensive overview of late 20th and 21st century fashion.
