Join us for the free workshop where we will explore through discussion, debate and research the way in which costume has been used to interpreted Jane Austen’s unforgettable literary characters in adaptations for stage and screen. Get hands on, explore and be inspired by Hampshire Wardrobe’s costume hire collection. Learn how costume designers make their decisions. Delve into the political and social history of the Regency period and its effect on fashion throughout Jane Austen’s life.

We offer an eclectic mix of historical reproductions, original vintage and theatrical costumes to hire for all kinds of productions and special events. We have a small and dedicated team, with a passion for history, costume and the performing arts.
