The first ever exhibition dedicated to one woman's fascination with clothes in the early 20th century goes on display in an art gallery in Liverpool.

Emily Tinny was the wife of a Liverpool GP and in the 1920s and 1930's her hobby turned to addiction.

Her husband used to try to intercept the parcels of dresses and send them back.

Her family have donated the dresses to Liverpool's Walker Art gallery, for the English Lady's Wardrobe exhibition.

Rachel Townsend has been for a look at the fashion from the past.
