26/06/2021 > 12/09/2021
“Dress code: Art Nouveau”provides a glimpse into the wardrobe and lifestyle of women living at the turn of the 20th century through selected items from the Iparművészeti Múzeum (Museum of Applied Arts of Budapest)’ Textile and Apparel Collection. By presenting the contemporary clothing and accessories, the Museum conjure up the new, ethereal feminine ideal created by Art Nouveau, which included not just women’s appearance, but also their education.
The exhibition presents three major units: the more modest daytime and weekday apparel; the glittering garments for the evening and special events; and the up-to-date clothing suited to the new lifestyle focused on sport, education, and work.
