Marie Boutique are celebrating a milestone this September with the launch of an exciting project in collaboration with lingerie brands. To mark the boutique’s 80th birthday, the Marie team are organising a pop up exhibition aimed at educating current and potential clients on traditional corsetry-making techniques, fabric development and how lingerie shapes and styling have changed over the last 80 years. Lingerie brands that wish to participate are encouraged to send historical pieces, old illustrations or adverts that will help tell the story of our industry.
Old newspaper articles and historical artefacts are also going to be included in the exhibition as well as customer memoirs to celebrate Marie being a part of the local community for so long. Marie Boutique’s 80th Birthday Exhibition will take place in the Abingdon County Hall Museum (pictured below) between 8th-16th September 2016.
