Jean Muir: A Fashion Icon

Jean Muir: A Fashion IconJean Muir: A Fashion Icon

November 1, 2009 - Explore the work of an international fashion designer and unravel the distinctive 'Jean Muir' look at the National Museum of Scotland from Fri 7 November - Sun 15 March 2009.

Jean Muir was an iconic figure in the world of fashion design. Highlights from her inspiring collection, donated to National Museums Scotland by her widower Harry Leuckert, will be on display for the very first time.

The British designer held a unique place in the international fashion scene, from her emergence in the swinging 1960s to her death in 1995.


In Paris, she was the 'new queen of the dress' and in New York, 'the jewel in the crown of British fashion'. To her customers she was 'addictive' and in her own words, 'evolutionary not revolutionary'.

Jean Muir: A Fashion Icon celebrates the life and workings of this individual and revered dressmaker. Find out why she obtained such accolades through a stunning display of garments, sketches, patterns and accessories, catwalk footage and fashion photography.

National Museum of Scotland, Chamber Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1JF. Tel: 0131 225 7534 www.nms.ac.uk
