The Exhibition Hall and the Story of Materials Hall of the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague

Following on loosely from the ‘Czech Fashion’ series of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, which ran from 1989 to 2007, the current exhibition, in a set of eighty items of clothing, shows the rise and fall of Prague fashion houses from the turn of the century to the Communist takeover in February 1948. The examples from thirty-five tailoring and dressmaking establishments, including the most luxurious, like Rosenbaum, Podolská, Roubíčková, and Bárta, and medium-sized and small companies, illustrate how the renowned elegance of Prague was developed by joining superior traditional craftsmanship to current French and British fashion trends adapted to local taste and style.

Considering the relatively long time span and the large number of items, the exhibition is divided into two parts. The first, ‘Prague Fashion Houses, 1900–18’, is located in the main showcase in the Story of Materials Hall of the permanent exhibition of the Museum. The second, ‘Prague Fashion Houses, 1918–48’, is in the Exhibition Hall.

The ‘Prague Fashion Houses, 1900–48’ exhibition includes an interactive programme for visitors.

To accompany the exhibition, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and Arbor vitae have published a richly illustrated volume, in Czech and English, which charts the extraordinary lives of the owners of these fashion houses on the background of dramatic historical events.
