The Pennington Mellor Munthe Charity Trust (PMMCT) has a collection of Worth dresses that they are looking to rehome. Commissioned by Anna Catherine Pennington Mellor to Worth of London, the PMMCT’s Collection boasts over two dozen luxury dresses tailored to measure for Anna Catherine herself and her daughter Hilda in the last quarter of the 19th century. It also includes accompanying garments and accessories, several pairs of shoes, umbrellas and a rich range of hats, which bring to life the development of high fashion during the period. The collection is unique in that all garments were made by the same costumier. Most of it remained packed and untouched for almost 80 years until it was found in 2011 in one of the basements at Southside House, Wimbledon. It is in a very good state of conservation.
