22 June - 20 October | admission is included with all house and garden tickets.

In 2023, the Chatsworth textiles team welcomed eminent fashion designer Erdem Moralıoğlu, alongside his design team, to explore historic textiles archived in the Devonshire Collections

Taking inspiration from Duchess Deborah, Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection references and reinterprets historic patterned textiles, as well as the shapes, silhouettes and styles she wore.

Imaginary Conversations provides insight into Erdem's creative process, from the initial thrill of discovery when delving into the Chatsworth archives, to the artistry and techniques of designing new clothes. 

Set within the guest bedrooms, the exhibition brings together historic prints and drawings, textiles, jewellery and photographs, with the eclectic taste of Deborah, the late Dowager Duchess, woven throughout. 

Key looks from the Erdem SS24 collection will sit alongside the source material. Collectively, these stories of the past and present pay tribute to British craft and flair, reinforcing Duchess Deborah’s inimitable spirit and vision.

Imaginary Conversations celebrates how Chatsworth, and the Devonshire Collection, can inspire the artists, makers and designers of today.
