Colorful, flowerish, baroque - the 18th century's fashion spectacle in silk, satins, damasks, brocade in exhibition. The presentation is the result of the cooperation between the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Musée Galliera in Paris. Both mirror the images of each other, so revealing the similarities and differences between ‘French’, ‘European’ and ‘Dutch’ fashions. the first "designer">>>
