The exhibition Modemuze@OBA provides the enthusiasts the richness of fashion, costume and accessories that are in Dutch museum collections.
From historical clothing to contemporary creations of young designers like Jef Montes and Luca Kemkes, you can discover it at this special exhibition.
Modemuze is a cooperation of twelve Dutch museums with a unique fashion and costume collection.
Under the name Modemuze the museums are collaborating to permanently present these collections online. They aim to connect a growing amount of Dutch fashion and costume collections and present them as a source of inspiration for fashion lovers, professionals and fashionistas.
The thousands of garments and accessories in these museums represent many stories about their creators and wearers, about the changes in taste, about imagination and identity. These collections are very vulnerable because of their frigile textiles and therefore not permanently visible to the public. www.modemuze.nl gives you 24/7 the opportunity to wander through centuries, get inspired and share the beauty of costume heritige.
