"Glamour" at the Museum of Custome and Lace, Brussels.
After the Roaring Twenties and era of androgyny, which allowed for all sorts of extravagance, the woman makes a discrete return with unostentatious luxury, in accordance with recent crisis years. She rediscovers her shapes, by emphasising knowledgeable cuts, and diagonally cut fabrics that cling to the body.
The female dress code is extremely complicated and its complexity will only grow with social style. But whatever their condition, women dream of dressing like Hollywood actresses, in breath-taking gowns. Glamour and sophistication become the focus of the decade.
Until 19th April
