As a costume historian Meridith Towne helps historic sites, libraries, and social groups to add a unique element to their meeting by offering lively, informative presentations on women’s history told through fashion, enhanced with an extensive visual display of original costume from her own private collection. As a historic dressmaker, she helps museums and historical properties to increase footfall and income by creating costume to; complement exhibitions, enhance visitor experience with dress-up rails and boxes, to be used by staff and to facilitate learning within their education programme, which makes the whole property unique and attractive to visitors. Meridith also offers made-to-measure period costume for private individuals looking for a unique or themed outfit. Gaining inspiration from original costume and working with the client’s ideas, she designs and makes the costume they have always wanted, fully tailored, to create a truly bespoke outfit.
