Outfit ‘900 in Palazzo Morando

Until November 4, 2018, starting from December 19, 2017, there will be a fantastic exhibition on fashion clothing of the ‘900 italian or . The event opens on the fantastic setting of Palazzo Morando in Milan , respecting the Costume Fashion Image dedicated to the woman of the twentieth century, a century that promised a lot to the feminine styles of “dress”. Promoted by the Department of Culture , will leave a glimpse of a “cut” of clothes never seen before, and will allow you to explore the exhibitions of costume and fashion of the Museum.Great opportunity to test the “eyes of the viewer” on models of clothes not yet exhibited, but united by the fact that in the last century were worn on special occasions.

These will be: evening dresses, prom dresses, court dresses (especially in the early years), “great lunch”, and of course wedding dresses . As already happened in the past exhibition: Embroidery of light . Sequins and sequins in the fashion of Palazzo Morando 1770-2004, will be exposed to the theme ” fashion ‘900″ that will cross a century, already “explored” and a speech already started in 2016 on the customs of the ‘ 900 . But there will be a surprise: the dress by Glenn Close , by Giorgio Armani , will be exhibited , worn during the 1994 Oscars ceremony .Furthermore, it should be added that the idea of ​​the exhibition was born to give an account of a project that has seen “give light” to the comparison of ancient and modern clothes, to put it in a nutshell: to relate the fashion of today with that of the time.

Another particularity will consist in the fact that much of the clothing heritage comes from free and liberal donations of “any” citizens. They have shown that they also want to share their memories by exposing their clothes. Most are part of them is from Milan, and they wanted to make it clear how interesting it could be to outline the “ranks” of a story from the 1900s and early 2000s. It has given rise to exhibitions of dresses with embroideries of pailletes , held in ‘”Closet” by many people of a certain age or posterity and descendants of these same exponents of citizenship who have thought, of course, not to get rid of, but to “put in common” with the Museum their past, in fact.

In this way it has been possible to highlight and make “over time” the importance of some Houses that would otherwise have been forgotten forever and would thus be ended in oblivion . We read many stories behind these clothes, that is, they revisited: special occasions, which, with the passing of the years, have passed to daughters or grandchildren. Then, Grazietta Butazzi has begun the “tradition” of accompanying them also photos of many of these women in the 1900s .We get an excerpt of life from the past near us a century that perhaps, (indeed, certainly) will amaze and make pleasantly surprised at the same time, to leave a truly special and unforgettable memory of that clothing that has “talked” to visitors, (and also to each of them) of that era and of those stories.

In addition, some donors were asked to tell their stories and their anecdotes, related to their family on those occasions when they wore the clothes shown. Thus, from the beginning of the century to the end of the First World War, it was possible to erase much of the style of the Belle Epoque to live more dynamically both during the conflict and soon thereafter. Even the revisiting of wedding dresses is fantastic and hits the mark especially after the Second World War this time, where the day of “yes” becomes the most important and as such is also experienced by the public, we would say. In the Exhibition Program we assist and find ourselves seeing various “projects”, divided by categories . The first category contains the dress from dance ; the 2nd: the wedding dress ; category 5 the dress of the afternoon ; 12 evening dress , and so on … Continuing a truly unique and very interesting journey of a “cursus” of experiences not to be forgotten.If you want to be guests of Morando you can, in short, enjoy all this with effective participation.
