The Embroidered Bodies: Textile Exhibition at Broadway Museum & Art Gallery will include a selection of garments drawn from the Eastern and Western textile collections of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Works will include a diverse range of garments from hats to shoes, stomachers to collars, dating from as far back as the 1400s right up to the 20th century.
