Czech-born costume designer Pavel Jarab is the designer behind the exhibition. It is taking place at 2 Royal Avenue in the city centre.
Featuring an array of French-inspired Rococo fashion, the exhibition will be open to the public until Tuesday, 27 September. So, Bridgerton fans across Northern Ireland will have plenty of time to visit the city to check it out.
Bridgerton period costume exhibition arrives in Belfast ‒ take a step into the past
Built in the 1860s, 2 Royal Avenue is one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Belfast. Designed by prolific Irish architect WJ Barre, the building has had a long and varied history over the past 160 years.
In the 1990s, the building was transformed into a Tesco Metro, which it continued to be until recent years. However, as part of the upscaled programme of culture and creativity planned for Belfast between 2022 and 2024, the building took on new life.
Today, 2 Royal Avenue acts as an events space, which hosts several workshops and activities. A calm and well-designed space, it is the perfect venue for the Bridgerton period costume exhibition.
A great day out for all ‒ a wonderous fashion exhibition
Mayor of Belfast Christina Black spoke on the arrival of the Bridgerton period costume exhibition in Belfast. She said, “These costumes are really exceptional. I think it’s fantastic that they’re on display in this very fitting city centre venue.
“I’d encourage people to pop in on their way past or stop by on their lunch hour to see Pavel’s wonderful artistry.
“I think it’s particularly fitting that these impressive costumes are going to be shown in such a special heritage building with so much history of its own, here in the heart of Belfast.”
On 21 September, the venue is hosting ‘Belfast does Bridgerton’. Guests at the event can expect a night of music and dance alongside 18th-century fashion. Tickets are free, and refreshments will be served throughout the night.
