Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie
February 9 – May 13, 2018
The stylish fashions and luxurious travels of the Vanderbilts launch at Biltmore with a stunning new exhibition, Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie. Dazzling costumes from the iconic film—representing the extensive wardrobes required by transatlantic travelers like George and Edith Vanderbilt in the early 1900s—will be displayed in the grand rooms of Biltmore House. This is the first large-scale exhibition of fashions from Titanic, which won a record 11 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Costume Design.
More than 45 film costumes evoke the lifestyle of the era, when voyages on the great ocean liners of the early 20th century offered high society and luxury on ships known as “Floating Palaces.” First class passengers took every opportunity to see and be seen in the finest fashions of the time, from strolling the promenade deck to attending elegant formal dinners. And, just like in Titanic, the days at sea fostered friendships and romances, including Vanderbilt’s courtship of Edith Stuyvesant Dresser.
Learn more about the Vanderbilts’ extensive travels while marveling at the exquisite detail meticulously recreated for these award-winning fashions.

With 11 breweries, Asheville has a beer scene unrivaled for a city of its size (about 74,000 people). Highland Brewing started it all in December 1994, using a system of retrofitted dairy equipment to produce 6,500 barrels of beer a year (it now produces three times as much). Its in-house tasting room has been expanded to accommodate concerts on weekends.
Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain is almost as famous for its music shows as it is for its Pisgah Pale, one of Asheville’s favorite beers. If you go to Wedge Brewing Co., a brewery and tasting room in Asheville’s lively River Arts District, you’ll enjoy not only its Super Saison and Iron Rail IPA, but you’ll also watch the trains go by on the track by the river.
