Dress of the Year

The Dress of the Year is an annual fashion award run by the Fashion Museum, Bath from 1963. Each year since 1963, the Museum has asked a fashion journalist to select a dress or outfit that best represents the most important new ideas in contemporary fashion[1]. For 2010 the Museum broke with tradition by asking the milliner Stephen Jones, rather than a journalist, to choose an outfit. [2]. The outfit is then donated to the Fashion Museum along with an Adel Rootstein mannequin to represent that year's total look.[1]
