Downton Abbey at the Spadina House

On wednesday I attended an exhibit of costumes from the television show Downton Abbey at the historical Spadina House in Toronto.  Though I don’t watch the show (yet) I was thrilled to get to see the beautiful period costumes in person.  The exhibit was enhanced by a few historical garments from the Spadina House’s collection.  Each Downton Abbey costume was accompanied by a photo of the actor/actress wearing that outfit on the show.  They also included a lot of the jewellery, which was an extra treat.  The details on these pieces were outstanding, lots of hand beading, embroidery and embellishments.  Have a look at my trip back in time at the Spadina House…
