See Biltmore's fifth annual costume exhibition, A Vanderbilt House Party: Guests, Grandeur & Galas, displayed throughout the grand rooms inside Biltmore House! You'll imagine yourself as a cherished guest at one of George and Edith Vanderbilt's grand turn-of-the-century house parties. Through audio storytelling and elegant clothing meticulously recreated from archival Vanderbilt photos, hear and see fascinating stories of how they entertained their guests. They definitely knew how to do it in style! (Photo above from Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics in 2017.)
