My girlfriend is, I have to admit, something of a fashionista and any opportunity to look at clothes, shoes and costumes is taken. Being the dutiful boyfriend I tag along and try to understand her passion; after all she does the same for mine. This gallery is, I admit, like a treasure trove being, as it is, one of the country’s largest repositories of costumes dating back hundreds of years. With my girlfriend’s passion sated we both enjoyed our visit here. - Jonathan Harris
