Haute Bordure

Fries Museum - 2021

View project

In the Fries Museum you will discover that embroidery is of all times and for everyone; young and old, man and woman! Nearly 150 garments and accessories prove that embroidery is more than decoration; it shows who you are. In the exhibition Haute Bordure you can marvel at four centuries of handmade embroidery in Dutch fashion. From a spectacular catsuit by Jan Taminiau – stitched from head to toe with sequins – to gold-threaded shoes from 1620, and from rustling roaring twenties dresses to 18th century men’s cardigans with meticulously embroidered details. A must-visit for fashion lovers and textile fans.
