A couple of days ago I visited the new exhibition at Nordiska museet, Modemakt or Power of fashion. There wasn’t a huge amount of 18th century clothes but the ones they did show were really wonderful.
The exhibition has it’s own website complete with a database containing pictures and information about most of the garments on show. Continue reading to see my own photos from the exhibition.
Cap, probably 18th century.
Banyan, mid 18th century.
Banyan, second half of the 18th century.
Stays, the pair in the middle are mid 18th century, I forgot to check the information for the others.
Stays, mid 18th century.
Stays, forgot the information about these.
Pocket hoops, second half of the 18th century.
The Swedish national suit, 1778.
My personal favourite. A dress cut similarly to the female version of the Swedish national suit. Though it seems to me to have quite a few differences. 1780s.
Amazing robe à la française. I’m usually not that into françaises but this one is definitely an exception. About 1770.
I forgot the information for this bodice.
Suit, about 1750.
Buttons, 1780s to -90s.
