The works of art on display are drawn from the MA*GA Museum and from private collections in Italy with many have never been previously shown in the UK.
The exhibition showcases a large selection of looks created since 1953 by Rosita Missoni and from 1997 by Angela Missoni as well as previously unseen textile studies, paintings and Arazzi Ottavio Missoni.
