Legendary costume designer, Ann Carnaby, visits SBM

Ann Carnaby, owner of the renowned Tracy Theatre Originals (founded in the 1880s), is visiting the historic costume and textile collection at Strawbery Banke tomorrow. We are looking forward to greeting her, talking fashion and design. Among her many accomplishments, she is currently writing a book about the changing proportions of women's figures over the last few centuries.

This link will introduce you to history of the company, but be prepared to spend hours looking at some amazing work!
