Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie at Biltmore

Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie at Biltmore

More than 45 Academy Award winning period costumes from the 1998 movie Titanic will be on display at the Biltmore Estate, February 9-May 13, 2018. The film costumes brought to life the extravagant and elegant wardrobes of travelers such as the Vanderbilts in the early 20th Century. This first large-scale exhibit of Titanic film fashion is even more interesting, considering the Vanderbilt’s near connection to the Titanic tragedy.

George and Edith Vanderbilt had secured first class passage on the maiden voyage of the Titanic, but for some reason, changed their sailing and left a week earlier on Titanic’s sister ship, the Olympic. Their luggage and a servant who sailed with it, were lost at sea.

See Explore Asheville’s article and the Biltmore Estate website for more information. Many thanks to Dr. Marian Yeates for the special event photograph.
