This autumn we’ll travel in time through fashion magazines: from the France of Louis XIV, with the birth of the luxury industry, to the end of the 19th century and the arrival and development of the fashion press in Spain.
The common thread will be the different fashion publications, associated with different milestones: the first, the Mercure Galant, that appeared in France (1672); then the publication of the first flagship fashion magazines that still persist today, such as Harper’s Bazaar (1867) and Vogue (1892), in the United States.
Different transversal interpretations are presented according to the magazine types: feminine, feminist, educational… with the objective of creating a certain woman type. Other aspects that stand out are the evolution of the silhouette, the change of attitude that came with the introduction of sports, social life or the woman joining the workforce and her life in the domestic setting.
Fashion Extra! invites reflection on the fashion press model in current society by journeying to its origins. Fashion sketches, clothing and other pieces from the Museo’s collection make up this exhibition together with resources from other public institutions and private collections.
