Downton Abbey premiered in the U.S. a decade ago, but today, more than five years after concluding its six-season run, the period drama remains one of the most acclaimed British costume dramas of all time. Several of those elegant costumes from the series about a family of British aristocrats and their domestic servants are swinging through Spokane. The MAC is hosting Dressing the Abbey, a traveling exhibit featuring more than three dozen original costumes from the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning show. Styles span the series’ timeline from 1912 to the mid-1920s, and savvy fans may recognize exactly who and when each exquisite outfit was worn among characters like the Lord and Lady Grantham, their three daughters and household employees. Reserve tickets online to see the show during Phase 2 restrictions.
