EDINBURGH.- The National Museum of Scotland present today Jean Muir: A Fashion Icon, on view through March 15, 2009. Explore the workings of this 20th century fashion designer, and unravel the distinctive 'Jean Muir' look. Jean Muir was an iconic figure in the world of fashion design. In 2005, the Jean Muir collection of over 18,000 items was donated to National Museums Scotland by her widower, Harry Leuckert. This cutting edge exhibition will feature selected highlights from this amazing collection, on display to the public for the 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, accessories, catwalk footage and fashion photography. We also have a fantastic programme of events with a Jean Muir theme starting in November - make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!
