Costumes from 'Downton Abbey' to be Displayed at Biltmore
Fans of the PBS series "Downton Abbey" can see costumes from the show at the Biltmore House in Asheville.
Biltmore House will host an exhibition titled, "Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times," Feb. 5-May 25. The show will include more than 40 costumes from the television series.
Biltmore House was built in the 1890s for the Vanderbilt family. The Downton costumes will be displayed in groupings themed on events from the fictional show, with connections made to real life at the Vanderbilt estate during the same early 20th century era.
An exhibit of costumes from "Downton Abbey" just closed at Winterthur, the former du Pont estate in Delaware, where it broke attendance records.
