Fashion in the period 1600–1650 in Western European clothing is characterized by the disappearance of the ruff in favour of broad lace or linen collars .
Fashion exhibitions have turned in the last two years or so into the proverbial goose that lays golden eggs for many museums all over the world. Yet, while there are very important museums such as New York's Met focusing on major retrospectives and events, there are also smaller and less known institutions that are actually worth visiting because they do have some true gems in their collections. One of them is the Fashion Museum in Bath, located in the grand Assembly Rooms. The latter, designed by John Wood The Younger and opened in 1771, were mainly used by the fashionable Georgian society for dancing, card playing and dining.
