Explore fashion history with legs at centre stage from the dawn of civilisation through current-day trends.

How have legs appeared in dance, sport, performance, pageantry, and conventional or outre outfits? Find out how athletics, depictions in literature and art, and motifs in advertising and films reflect our changing times.
