Women’s fashion in 5 time periods

June 06, 2024 - October 20, 2024

Through a rich iconography, advertisements from newspapers as well as a significant choice of clothing and accessories from each era, take a look at the decades 1890, 1920, 1930, 1950 and 1970!

The least we can say is that women’s fashion has changed a lot over the past century and a half. From the corset to the mini-skirt, including the Charleston dress and “bell-bottom” pants, the “what to wear” has transformed, influenced by the desired image (by and/or for women) , identity affirmation and social diktats.

The exhibition Women’s Fashion in 5 times offers you an overview of the major changes in women’s fashion by looking at five decades considered pivotal, both for the new clothing items offered to women, but also for their respective historical context and the speeches linked to the affirmation of women who emerge from it.
