DRESS
A History in Layers

March 10–July 14, 2013

Fowler Museum at UCLA

Resplendent Dress from Southeastern Europe features fifty stunning nineteenth- through twentieth-century ensembles from Macedonia, Croatia, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Serbia, Hungary, the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, Montenegro, and Romania―nearly all from the Fowler’s excellent collection―plus one hundred individual items including aprons, vests, jackets, and robes. These fascinating ensembles are displayed in an immersive environment that evokes the distinctive mountain landscape in which villagers gathered in their finery.
