AN exhibition showcasing the fashions of the 1950s is continuing at Lotherton Hall.

Age of Glamour runs at the Aberford visitor attraction until the end of the year.

The exhibition looks at the Dior-inspired fashion revolution of an era when Britain made a break from the austere style of the post-war years.

It also examines how Parisian chic influenced the clothes on offer everywhere from exclusive design houses to familiar names of the high street such as Marks & Spencer. There are also displays giving an insight into domestic life at Lotherton Hall in the 1950s.
