Last day. Exhibition. Sixties! - Liberating colors

This event has already passed

Until 27 February 2011 at the Museum of Costume and Lace.

The Museum outlines the progress of female emancipation on the basis of its collections. During the 1960s western women experienced liberation in fashion. They won the right to wear trousers, giving them the freedom to uncross their legs, take long strides, or sprawl back in comfortable sofas without worrying about it, as well as the right to show their legs and thighs, clad in multicoloured tights.

This upsurge of freedom is perhaps the most visible expression of a deep and irreversible movement in the evolution of the feminine condition in our western society. The Costume and Lace Museum retraces the path followed by this liberation process through its collections.

Opening hours

The exhibition can be visited from 10 am to 5 pm. During the weekend from 2 pm to 5 pm. Closed on Wednesdays and holidays.
