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.

Grandma Lue. She’s not only the namesake of our little slice of BBQ heaven, but she is owner and pit boss Jeff Miller’s grandmother. She has handed down many a recipe in her day, and love is always the main ingredient … love and a handful of other super-secret goodies we’re not allowed to mention. It’s in her kitchen that we learned how truly great food is made. And she’s the reason why every dish we create is a scratch-made labor of love from start to finish. So be sure and tell your tongue and tummy to thank Grandma Lue.
