Getting ready for St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum’s summer show which opens on Saturday, museum curator Sam Bannerman contemplates some of the collection that is a fashionable walk down memory lane.

‘Furs, feathers, frills & florals: four decades of fashion: 1919-1959’ looks at fashion over 40 years with glamorous dresses, smart men’s clothes – and even a peek at what went underneath, along with a range of accessories from hats to jewellery and even furs. The clothes on show not only reflect fashion, but also the the experience of the country during those four tumultuous decades – from flappers to utility wear.

The exhibition is open daily until October 4.
