A new exhibition featuring costumes worn in the film Marie Antoinette is now open at the Textile Museum

Any new visitor to Prato must include the Textile Museum in their site-seeing to do list and now there's a further incentive.  Over twenty spectacular costumes 'fit for a queen' are the subject of the museum's latest temporary exhibition Marie Antoinette: The Oscar-winning costumes of a Queen, which runs from 11 February to 27 May 2018.  Director Sophia Coppola won an Oscar for the film in 2007, while world-renowned costume designer Milena Canonero, was the creator of these extraordinary garments made in Italy at a specialised cinematographic and theatrical production workshop in Rome, Sartoria The One, which has helped bring these costumes to Prato.
