Harris in the City: an exciting event showcasing the amazing textile heritage of the Harris Horrockses collection.

Saturday 27th August 2022

Harris in the City is all about seeing fashion shows celebrating Horrockses X Joanie fashions and discovering the history of these iconic designs, loved by royalty.

The Harris has the most extensive collection of Horrockses fashions in the UK. As we continue to tell the story of the Horrockses brand in the 21st century – we are delighted that after this event, five of the Joanie dresses will enter the museum’s collection to be preserved for the future.

Check out our Horrockses Mini Series with Fashion Historian and Harris Curator: Scott Schiavone.
