Join our costume curator to find out more about John Bates, one of the top British designers of the 1960s and 1970s.

His label 'Jean Varon' specialised in glamorous and romantic eveningwear. Clothes from this label are still much sought-after as vintage.

Browse around the costume display, featuring 13 outfits from the label, both daywear and eveningwear, all from the 1970s.
