‘All the Rage’ fashion exhibition in Wroclaw

In July 2016 I visited the National Museum in Wroclaw where in that time was an extraordinary exhibition of clothes and accessories that has been worn by the elite in the Communist era /1945-1989/. While ordinary costumers couldn’t afford silk dresses or any kind of designer clothing, privileged people of that time followed the fashion trends of Paris. There has been Polish designers and brands who released their collections frequently such as Moda Polska, Cora, Telimena and Dany, their products were unavailable to the public and made only for export. The exhibition was organised by Małgorzata Możdżyńska-Nawotka and Joanna Regina Kowalska and it debuted in Kraków first. According to Ms. Nawotka, ‘It makes an attempt to examine fashion as an area of artistic creation and designers’ creativity’. The exhibited items included dresses, overcoats, jackets, jumpsuits, evening gowns, wedding dresses, hats, clutches and shoes. It was open to public from May to August 2016.
