A new sample of the Sala Canal de Isabel II is making us enjoy, and, to those who love fashion.
This exhibition traces the history and evolution of the fashionable Spanish through 50 pieces from designers enshrined as Balenciaga and Pertegaz, Fortuny, Balenciaga to go closer to the present by the hand of Jesús de el Pozo, Rabanne or Sybilla up to Palomo Spain or David Delfín.
The influence of Spanish culture in the international fashion is represented by Galliano, Dries Van Noten, Lanvin and Givenchy.
All creations belong to the Costume Museum or private collections.The exhibition, curated by Raúl Marina and Wanda Morales, revolves around the Court suit, to the colors and especially to the black color (associated to the Spanish monarchy), religious aesthetics, the Andalusian world, bullfighting and the tradition which is reflected in the volume, in embroideries, lace, frills, flowers…

Especially striking design of the “mise en scene” which is simply spectacular; many of the pieces shown, masterfully lit, in mannequins on black backgrounds, so that we put all our attention on the clothes.
