Queen Maud of Norway was one of the best-dressed women of her age. Granddaughter
of Queen Victoria, she was born a princess and became Queen of Norway in 1905.
Her wardrobe includes a range of stunning creations dating from her wedding
trousseau of 1896 to the latest Worth designs of the 1930s, showing the incredible
changes in women's lifestyles and fashions from Edwardian bustles to informal
sportswear. Style & Splendour showcases some of the most spectacular garments,
now in the collection of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design
in Oslo, and sets them clearly in the context of Queen Maud's life and times.
