Fall in Love in Florence...
From December 3 2013 to May 18 2014
The Galleria del Costume opens its doors to an accessory not destined to pass unnoticed.
This will be the first monographic show dedicated to hats.
The Museum’s collections of this accessory, attributable to the generosity of many donors, amount to more than one thousand items usually kept in storage. Only a part of these will be exhibited.
Most of the items on show are by famed fashion houses including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, John Rocha, and Gianfranco Ferré. There will also be a substantial number of items by celebrated international milliners of the present and past, such as Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones, Caroline Reboux, Claude Saint-Cyr and Paulette. Finally, this will also be the first show to exhibit creations by Italian and Florentine milliners, some of them all but unknown.
