#exhibition | Fashion Utopias

Fashion is not a new invention – fashion is an attitude. So it’s not a surprise high fashion and valuable accessories have been en vogue since the early modern period. The MAK (Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst / Gegenwartskunst) presents until September 4th  Haute Couture in graphic arts.

About 200 objects are shown: paper, illustrated books, posters, and magazines recall the past five centuries of European Haute Couture. You see highlights of the collection which give you survey of the drawing of fashion. The historical significance of fashion journalism from that time is conveyed by the Journal des Luxus und der Moden—the counterpart of the French Élégance Parisienne—which was published from 1786 to 1827. As one of the first German-language fashion magazines with richly colorized copperplate engravings, this publication was on the cusp from classicism to Biedermeier.
