ASHEVILLE, N.C. — “Glamour on Board: Fashion from ‘Titanic’ The Movie” opens Feb. 9 at Biltmore.

A news release says costumes from the Oscar-winning 1997 film will star in the first large-scale exhibition inside America’s largest home.

The exhibition of fashions features hats, gowns, jewelry and tuxedos worn by Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kathy Bates and others filling the grand rooms once lived in by George and Edith Vanderbilt.

With these garments, Biltmore’s guests will have examples of the luxurious wardrobes favored by transatlantic travelers like the Vanderbilts in the early 1900s.

Parallels between the film and Biltmore don’t stop there, though, the news release says.

The exhibition will include the story of the Vanderbilts’ own plans to sail on Titanic’s maiden voyage. At the last minute, they decided to sail instead on Titanic’s sister ship, the RMS Olympic.
