Fashion - "under and over" (Ortsmuseum Kuesnacht)

May 15, 18.15 h - Register

Join us for the extraordinary exhibition of the museum which shows us how the fashion forms our bodies and put the ladies silhouette into the center and how it has changed since 1860 over all the decades. The tour of approx. 1 hour will be presented by the curator herself and you are invited to touch and feel some of the objects and fabrics. Not only for ladies - also for gentlemen. You will see the farthingale dress over the waist loose trailer dress of the 1920 years until the angular (squared) oversize look of the 1980 years. The various variation of the silhouette as the spirit of the times with the "overdresses" form the cover dresses. You will also see some "invisible dessous".

Furthermore a surprise is waiting for you at the lovely little Museum. The tour is free of charge for members and costs CHF 10.00 for guests.

Afterwards we reserved in a nearby restaurant to have a drink/bite and we can continue to discuss the art of fashion.
