Fashion is everywhere if you know how to look for it. I found a little Gem in Albi: a little Museum of Fashion, created by a passionnate Native of the Region who collected Clothes from the 1820's till the 1970's, and wanted to share them. The exhibition is situated in a tiny private mansion in a small back street of the City, the walls were painted dark blue, probably to hid the Clothes from daylight and protect their Colours. There is no order whatsoever in the way the Pieces are axhibited (which is quite surprising), it's kind of a big joyful mess, but the Clothes or so beautiful it works. The exhibition is very small but somptuous and will stop in December 2012 but it seems like the people of Albi were very fond of the Idea and a few families donated Family Clothes so the Museum will open again next Spring with a bigger Collection. I am looking forward to it!
Today I am showing you the Dresses, tomorrow I will show you the Accessories.
