Art Deco Style at the Museum of Applied Arts in Vilnius

February 17, 2011 § Leave a comment


Oh em gee. So the other day I went to this “Art Deco Style” exhibition from the private collection of Alexandre Vassiliev, dedicated to European fashion development in the interwar period, 1918-1939. Guess that’s how one feels on a backstage tour of Mad Men, ey?

No doubt the collection is quite something. From the pink  crepe satin evening dress with bead unicorn (?!) embroidery (Madeleine Vionnet fashion house, Paris, 1923-1926) to  the Egyptian style dress and cloak from Cairo shawls,1924, which considering the recent events in Egypt seemed to be very thematically appropriate.
