Admiral Costumes in the Saddle

One of our Edwardian costumes was put to yet another amazing use this week by being worn by a rider at an historical dressage competition.

The talented rider came first in class and looked superb in a black skirt with frilled hem, high necked lace blouse and red jacket with black velvet collar and buttons and pleated back detail.

An extra ‘skirt’ was added to drape over the back of the horse.

The challenge of finding a suitable hat that would fit over the riding helmet was met with a soft black wide brimmed music hall style hat, covered in black and red feathers.

We love the fact that our costumes are used for such a variety of activities which have included a women’s Edwardian hockey match in south London, a visit to the London Olympics and the Woburn garden design competition.

We have a superb range of costumes from all eras so do give us a call on 01908 372504 or visit our website
