Ball gowns in the prettiest shades of pale, hats and tailored suits, quirky bathing costumes and Elegant Parisian haute couture, lured me into the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague to see the exhibition Fabulous Fifties.
When you enjoy retro fashion and the fabulous costumes worn in tv series Mad Men, this exhibition is worth going too. I was really impressed. The Victoria and Albert museum in London has an amazing costume collection, but our Dutch Gemeentemuseum has too! Much thought was given to the décor, with vintage style curtains and eye for colour & detail. The clothes on display vary in style, from chique and Elegant, to office wear and rock and roll.
When you are looking for something fun to do one of the coming weekends, pop over to the Gemeentemuseum and see the exhibit. While you are there you may well enjoy the exhibit Happy Days too. It's about art in The Hague from 1947 to 1967.
Wish you all a Happy weekend!
