After the Second World War the world became beautiful, colourful and carefree again; luxury and unusual fashion gave an insight into the sunny side of life. The wish to overcome the "make-do-and-mend" fashion of the war time was the main motivation for the couturiers of the 20th century. In this special exhibition the focus is on haute couture dresses of the greatest fashion designers, jewellery, bags, hats, shoes and accessories. Immerse yourself in the dazzling world of fashion and skilful couture. There is no entrance fee this weekend.
