Weekend Passport: The Clothes Of Downton Abbey

Previous Next

Fans of the popular PBS series Downton Abbey...or anyone who enjoys lush, opulent, early 20th-century costume dramas, has only a few weeks to take in the “Dressing Downton” exhibit at Chicago’s Driehaus Museum. 

The clothes -- everything from ball gowns to mourning wear -- highlight not only what was fashionable for both men and women but what was changing in history during that era. 

On this week’s Weekend Passport, Global Citizen Nari Safavi is joined by WBEZ reporter Yolanda Perdomo, who’ll share some highlights from the show.

Click through our slideshow to see some of the fashion that will be on display.
