Chertsey Museum’s new costume exhibition, Day and Night, focuses on fashion between 1929 - 1939, capturing the essence of a decade of innovation, modernism, and, above all, glamour. Many of the pieces on display have been acquired by the Olive Matthews Trust during the last two years and have never before featured in an exhibition. The star piece is a stunning black and gold velvet evening jacket, created by the designer Mariano Fortuny in the 1930s and purchased by the Olive Matthews Trust in 2011. The exhibition encompasses both the extremes and essentials of 1930s female dress, featuring garments which range from daring printed beach pyjamas and startling striped trousers, to elegant evening dresses and scandalously scanty cami-knickers.
