Know first who you are, then adorn yourself accordingly.
Fashion is a way of differentiating ourselves. It allows us to exhibitour different attitudes to life; it can show off or hide our bodies; it can challenge or innovate; it can be modern or traditional. Fashion reflects the evolution of society over time. It is an integral part of our culture and therefore has a place in our museums.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum invites you on a journey through the world of fashion. Through the paintings in the collection we can see the continual change in the language of fashion and its styles. As we walk through the rooms, we will discover the evolution of clothing: the fabrics, the textures, the colours, the shapes and the attitudes towards the art of dressing.
