From now until May 27, 2019 Biltmore has a new exhibit, A Vanderbilt House Party – The Gilded Age.
A Vanderbilt House Party – The Gilded Age
For the first time, reproductions of clothing from the Vanderbilts’ own wardrobes are displayed in the settings in which they were originally worn: the elegant rooms of Biltmore House.
Guided by Biltmore curators, Oscar®-winning costumier John Bright and Cosprop, London meticulously recreated fashions favored by the Vanderbilts and their guests at turn-of-the-century celebrations known as house parties.
A new custom Exhibition Audio Guided Tour created for this exhibition combines realistic 360° sound techniques with stories told from the perspectives of those who lived and worked at Biltmore in the early 1900s; this special component is what makes this exhibition a unique, immersive audio-visual Biltmore experience. As you hear the stories and witness scenes previously seen only in century-old black-and-white photographs brought to vivid, colorful life, you will feel as though you were attending A Vanderbilt House Party.
Like other events at Biltmore, exhibits are throughout the house, illustrating life as it was when the Vanderbilt family entertained.
