Permanent exhibition The Art of Fashion – a new fashion exhibition at Børglum Monastery

High Necklines, low cuts, short or long?

Women’s fashion has changed a lot throughout the last 100 years, going from one end of the spectrum to the other, and them back again. The Art of Fashion is a entirely new fashion exhibition at Børglum Monastery, where you are able to experience the changes of fashion throughout the last 100 years.

To be fashionable and modern has meant many different things throughout the last century, as fashion evolved through upturns, economic crisis, world wars and cold wars. The iconic fashion designers have through this century affected the fashion of their time in their own way, as the female role in society also changed immensely.

What was deemed fashionable around the first part of the century, which was greatly inspired by the Art Nouveau style? How should you dress in the roaring twenties? What was the latest trend in Paris during the 1940s? What was “elegance” in the 1960s?.

What effect did the Second World War have on women’s fashion and their role in society?

The answer to all of these questions you may discover by visiting our new exhibition, which brings you on a journey through fashion of the last 100 years.

The exhibition showcases dresses and other fashion items that represent the main fashion tendencies of their time, making it possible to discover what was deemed beautiful and aesthetically pleasing throughout the 20th century.

The exhibition will be open for visitors from Saturday the 29th of April 2017. The exhibition will become part of the Monastery’s 15 other permanent exhibitions and may be visited during the normal opening hours.
