My little angel and me went to the museum a couple of days ago, and today I’m bringing you a bit of that exhibition to wherever you are in the world. My hometown is rather small, but it’s always had bouts of modernity here and there, and for what it seems last century was a good example of that. Enough talking for now, enjoy the show!
This was probably my favourite bit of the show. Since fast fashion didn’t really exist until the end of the century, people got around with just a couple of outfits per season (can you even imagine?), so their ability to style them and make them look different was quite astounding. These add-on collars are an example of that. They are embroidered in the finest of fabrics and with exquisite detail. Also note the roller and stamps to the side of them, to print new patterns on an old garment.
These shirts are miles away in quality, design and beauty, and only about 60 year away in time. You just can’t compare them, our basic white shirts are a joke next to those from the beginning of the century:
And this is one of the adverts on display. It was for Reblet shirtmaker. They definitely look quite special!
These ladies must be… Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha travelling back in time.
And here some actually window displays:
There is no fashion without accessories…
There were also some things that should have just never happened…
The final room held a pretty striking display of actual garments from the different decades (spot the 80’s dresses):
And with the turn-ups, we are all done here! Hope you enjoyed the exhibition as much as we did! As you can see, it inspired profound thoughts on Mateo and we discussed it on the way home.
I just want to say thank you to the organisers and hope Zaragoza sees many more shows like this one!
Bye for now!
