A Strange Death of Corsetry @ The Pump House

As part of the 2018 Hull's Heritage Open Days we bring to you A Strange Death of Corsetry. Based on the life and times of Madame Clapham and her Haute Couture Dressmaking Salon on Kingston Square, we move from 1910 to 1920; long hair tied in a bun to the bob; gowns to frocks and women as accessories or servants to citizens with the vote. This piece will take you on a journey from before and after the first world war focusing on the mind sets and society of those affected.
